Who Are You? 

It is fun to speculate on possible reactions and responses to an abrupt "Who 
are you/". I suppose both would depend on who asks the question and under 

what circumstances. One's answer could range from, I'm " 

to, "Who wants to know.'" or even to a moody, "Who am I indeed?" followed 
by a plunge into self-analysis. 

In this particular case I'll presume, from where I sit, to answer the ques- 
tion for a collective you. 

You are Alumnae of Salem College. You are under/over forty. You are 
concerned and involved with family, community, vocations, avocations You 
are BUSY. 

Chances are, when you think of Salem, it is with nostalgic warmth. Some- 
times a few of you may even give some thought to what Salem has meant in 
your lives. Chances are best of all that you rarely consider what you mean to 
Salem — who you are as far as Salem is concerned. 

So I'll tell you. 

You are Salem's voice wherever you are. In every freshman class there 
are students who became interested in Salem primarily because of you. 

If Salem remains strong and independent, it will be because of your pride 
in her distinguished history, your recognition of her special value and quality, 
and your concern for continuing educational excellence. 

You are the women who think Salem, talk Salem, support Salem. 

You are the women who will help determine Salem's future. 



ON THE COVER 

The cover photograph is the arrangement by Jack White, Presi- 
dent Gramley's Assistant, which won "best in show" in artistic ar- 
rangements at the Dixie Classic Fair last month. 

Mr. White said he had heard so much about arranging from 
his u'ife and mother, who had entered many contests, that he decided 
to make a try in the "Independent Candidate" category. 

His shoe, almost covering the plywood map of the United States, 
depicts the travels of the candidate. The shoe is filled with grasses, 
and lirope through which the candidate would pass. The large chry- 
santhemum sets the season. This particular flower came from the 
decorations for the opening of the Salem College Book Store.

On Literary Reality 

Dr. William H. Baskin, III 
Associate Professor of Modern Languages 

I am personally convinced that the small liberal arts 
college . . . offers an exceptional opportunity in the realms 
of language and literature and intellectual awareness. The 
human mind needs and demands the discipline and nourish- 
ment that this kind of training can give us. Most par- 
ticularly, the literature of the present age seems to bear 
witness to this point of view. It is still to literature that 
man looks for an understanding of the human heart in 
its conflict with itself. Whether Proust or Pirandello, Joyce 
or Eliot, Cocteau or Camus, Albee or Burroughs, Felini or 
Robbe-GriUet — contemporary literature throughout the 
world has been and will continue to be vitally concerned 
with the exploration and representation of reality. The 
quest for reality in these and many other writers has ad- 
dressed itself principally to the nature and meaning of 
vitality, identity and integrity. As a result, human vitality, 
individual identity and authenticity have been presented, in 
recent years, in an almost bludgeoning barrage of verbage 
which often on first exposure appears senseless, absurd, 
unreal and even vulgar. This seemingly absurd literature 
of revolt is the result of the extreme tensions of man's 
nostalgia and reality's disorder, and the efforts of man to 
create a workable, livable, manageable reality. 

This literature, then, is in the tradition of imaginative 
literature of all time — imaginative literature which ele- 
vates and liberates the human spirit, which in its language 
is suggestive, abstract and provocative and which awakens 
us to new meaning and moves us to the realization of the 
existence of soul . . . The literary and linguistic experience 
affords us a revealing glimpse, however fleeting, of our 
authentic self and these fleeting, privileged moments are 
those in which our truth and our reality are made known 
to us. As Proust and others have shown, reality exists only 
in the mind, and any artistic expression represents a mo- 
ment of a private reality caught in the cage of form, or 
its absence. And yet, in spite of its personal and private 
nature . . . somehow it puts us in touch with our authentic 
self and teaches us something of the world and of our 
place in it that we had not seen before. And in this process, 
in the process of the aesthetic experience the "mystique" 
of our own reality is shaped and formed. 
... As Matthew Arnold put it, we must have the long- 
ing to inquire — 

"Into the mystery of this heart 

which beats 
So wild, so deep in us — to know 
"Whence our lives come and 
whence they go." 

This inner inquiry, this quivering inquisitiveness as 
Andre Gide has called it, is indeed our individual reality 
and constitutes, for me at least, the very essence of the in- 
tellectual venture, of the linguistic experience, and of the 
excitement of learning. 



On the Once and Future 
Graduate 

Dr. Inzer Byers — Professor of History 

One thing which made the Chicago convention scene 
so fascinating and at the same time disturbing, was the 
way in which the reality of passion and concern kept in- 
truding upon the would-be neat stage-managed world of 
Convention Hall. "While Mayor Daley might have been 
happy presenting a picture of Chicago "where once it never 
rained till after sundown — by 8 a.m. the morning fog 
had flown", the image of Camelot kept being shattered 
by the confrontation scenes that could not be wished away 
or strong-armed away from the T.'V. screen. The issues of 
war or peace in "Vietnam, of racial justice, and law and 
order at home were brought vividly to attention. No 
Camelot image could survive this confrontation with reality. 

Perhaps something of the same thing is happening in 
the academic world. Personally, I've never taken to the idea 
of scholars in ivory towers as the picture of the academic 
world. But if so, those Camelots, too, have been turned 
into Chicagos. Ten years ago we spoke of the "silent 
generation" of students, the uninvolved and privatistic 
student. Today student activism is a world-wide phenome- 
non. And students share its values in capitalist, communist 
and third-world countries alike. There has been a "shaking 
of the foundations" as the voice of the new student gen- 
eration is heard. Perhaps the activists are a minority. But 
a larger voice is heard for change, for justice, for peace, 
for a piece of the action in determining their own lives. 

. . . Certainly the sense of the need for change is upon us. 
For one thing, we are living in a period of reassessment 
of foreign policy devised in the Cold "War era. "We witness 
among historians and politicians a reevaluation of the Cold 
"War and our own part as a nation in its inception — the 
extent to which our fears, ambitions, idealogy led us to 
act in ways which provoked counter-reactions. 

"We are confronted with the necessity of change not 
only in foreign policy but also at home. Our cities and 
their ghetto populations pose the problem most dra- 
matically. It is certainly not enough for politicians to re- 
treat behind their moats and fortress walls and play at 
"politics as usual" . . . One question with which they and 
we are confronted is: how to bring about social change? 
Can it be within the old political structure? Or must a 
New Politics be evoked to confront the Old. Can one still 
bring change within the old parties? 

The excitement of learning today involves the formula- 
tion of new questions and the development of new an- 
swers, and the capacity and courage to act. For better or 
worse, we're called into the "wine-making" business today. 
And it is new wine and new wineskins both that are 
called for. Yet, at the same time we are seeking to preserve 
the wine cellar of the past. Can we do it? Is the cry for 
"law and order" to be just another phrase meaning re- 
action? Given the call to preserve the best of our past heri- 
tage, can we combine conservation with radical change? 

History suggests that for significant change to occur, 
the persons and the times must interact. Today, the per- 
sons and the time for change are met. And so to you, once 
and future graduates: Goodbye to Camelot. Welcome to 
Chicago!

On Science — 
"To Be Announced . . /' 

Stephen R. Nohlgren 
Instructor in Biology 

TOKYO — The doctor escorts a young couple into his office 
and says, "Do you want a boy or a girl?" The couple decide on a 
girl and leave the office. 

Some weeks later, soon after conception, the doctor surgically 
removes the embryo from the woman and cells from it are 
examined under the microscope. The chromosomes, which carry 
the hereditaiy information in the cells, indicate that the woman 
will indeed bear a girl and the embryo is reimplanted. 

Nearly nine months later the couple become the parents of 
a baby girl. Had the chromosomes predicted a boy, the developing 
embryo would have been discarded and the couple instructed 
to "try again." 

Is that a passage from Huxley's Brave New World? 
Or perhaps Orwell's 1984? No! It is the first three para- 
graphs from an article in a recent Sunday's Winston- 
Saletn Journal and Sentinel, dateline Tokyo. Sound fan- 
tastic' — It has been done successfully with rabbits and 
many geneticists believe it's only a matter of time — 
under 25 years — before this and even bolder manipula- 
tions can be applied to humans! 

The fantastic is exciting — and the work with DNA, 
RNA, and the GENE is for hundreds of scientists LEARN- 
ING EXCITEMENT. The announcements forthcoming 
in this work should stagger the mind. And in research on 
the mind — the brain — we find the psychobiologists 
probing the chemistry of a fact learned. One approach is 
using extracts of RNA from the brains of rats trained to 
perform a task. This "smart" RNA is then injected into 
an untrained or "dumb" rar. Studies show that this rat 
learns the task in half the time it takes an uninjected 
dumb" rat. Is RNA the substance responsible for memory 
storage and retrival? Future announcements may pro- 
claim this. 

Beyond this, some scientists predict that learning itself 
may undergo drastic changes. If this RNA is the factor 
of a fact learned, we should someday be able to synthesize 
"smart" RNA on math, physics, foreign languages, ad 
infinitum — in convenient pill form. Then when you plan 
a rocket trip to Spain you can run down to the local 
mind drug store and purchase a Spanish pill, pop it in 
your mouth and whip thru a Spanish book for review — 
presto, you know Spanish. 

The year 1970 looms on the horizon as the year of 
one great announcement: NASA promises, in spite of 
past difficulties, that one of man's greatest dreams will 
be realized when American astronauts plant the Stars and 
Stripes on the surface of the moon. iVIeanwhile Jacques 
Cousteau and others plunge deeper into the exploration of 
inner space — learning what exciting things the oceans 
have (or wish) to reveal. 

All these "happenings" are, or will be, learning exer- 
cises — exciting learning for men and women. It is reason- 
able to conclude that some of you may play important 
parts in any of these or countless other adventures in the 
discoveries that are Science. 

. . . One of science's most exciting new tools (and 
notice I said tool, not master) is the COMPUTER. "With 
its help, science is moving ahead at a tremendous rate — 
often too fast for society and its moral laws to keep pace. It 
is the product of a learning excitement in the sciences, 
math and electronics.

On Education and the Future 

James Lee Bray 
Associate Professor of Education 
... I hold no credentials as a professional prophet, and 
would have you know that my so-called predictions are 
simply deductions based on trends as I have viewed them 
these past years. 

It is my belief that the next two decades will see many 
value giants that we presently hold completely fade from 
the scene. Let me name some of these: ( 1 ) Grades ( A,B, 
CD and F). This change will be harder for teachers than 
for students. For years we have justified our symbols as 
being fair, and a true indication of the work accomplished. 
Neither has been the case. At best grades have served to 
report accurately the personal conviction of performance 
as seen by one individual, the teacher. Grades at their 
worst have been the instigators for cheating, placing a 
value on the grade itself rather than what was learned, 
and motivating students for the wrong goal in learning. 
( 2 ) Lectures per se as a primary means of teaching will 
also fade. As a matter of fact, there will be far less teacher 
talk . . . Teacher talk should serve only to motivate stu- 
dents to learn for themselves. In this regard, learning ful- 
fills the learner, and the excitement of the learning is in 
the independent knowing, not in hearing what is known. 
Again, teachers will expel this value giant less easily than 
will students. ( 3 ) Time and space will be greatly modified 
in the next few decades. There is certainly nothing sacred 
about college classes meeting three hours per week for 
three semester hours of credit. With few exceptions, 
notably science and applied coursework, it is assumed that 
all other courses need the same amount of time, the ap- 
proximate amount of classroom space and one teacher. The 
future will refute such an irrational thesis. Some courses 
are best served in larger groups while others require smaller 
numbers of students. Independent study, identified now al- 
most solely with the most gifted students, will move down 
into the ranks of the average in the next twenty years. For 
in one sense, all learning becomes independent study. ( 4 ) 
I rather suspect that the curriculum changes of the next 
few years will astound us all. There should be more changes 
in this area than in any other area of education — and this 
itself will be exciting to watch and to take part in. Over 
half of our body of knowledge that we now have has come 
to us since 1950! Think about an additional twenty years 
and the increase in our total body of knowledge. Specializa- 
tion in any one discipline will be a fruitless venture if 
specialization is defined as knowing a great deal about one 
facet of knowledge. It seems plausible then that a new 
epistemology must come forth to demonstrate the relation- 
ships of all disciplines with an emphasis on the theoretical 
aspects of such knowledge. The liberal arts college is in a 
sensitive location of the educational spectrum to lead in 
this endeavor. 

I could mention many more aspects of educational 
change I feel certain will come about in our future. Cer- 
tainly technology in the years ahead will produce sophisti- 
cated computers, advances in audio-visual equipment, and 
even undreamed of devices. None of these will replace the 
teacher and none will be any better than the minds of 
men who will devise and use them. 

There is one final word I leave in my role-playing of 
prophet . . . Change for change sake is foolish. Change for 
purpose, however, is quite another thing. And knowing the 
difference between the two is the better part of wisdom. 



On Interest, Help and 
Commitment 

President Dale H. Gramley 

.... I extend an invitation. If you accept the invitation, 
you will somehow accomplish all I wish for you per- 
sonally, plus what I've wished for students and faculty in 
years gone by. And if you accept the invitation, you will 
lose yourself in a cause which is greater than one one of 
us, although, actually, merely the sum of all of us together. 

My invitation is simply this: I invite your interest, your 
help and your commitment in preserving and strengthen- 
ing Salem College. You need consider the invitation only 
if you think an institution such as this is worth preserving 
and strengthening in a society which worships bigness, in- 
creasingly tolerates anonymity, awards most of its prizes 
to specialists, and is often completely satisfied with super- 
ficialities in form and substance. 

If you accept the invitation, however, you will align 
your interests, your abilities, your energies and your 
loyalties in a cause that will preserve and strengthen your- 
self as a person first and then the College inevitably as 
the agency that brings and binds us together. 

In view of all that is happening in higher education in 
this period of time and in the light of general unrest, 
uncertainty and dissatisfaction across our land, it is ap- 
propriate to ask: 

Is there a need and a place for a college like Salem .-' 
Or, perhaps better still: Can Salem develop into the type 
of place it might become and fulfill to a greater extent 
needs that exist? 

We have heard much about the financial crisis which 
faces the colleges and universities. And this is very real. 

We have heard much also about the need for innova- 
tion in education, including changes in the college calen- 
dar, the use of teaching machines, the introduction of visual 
aids, and the promotion of years-abroad or in Washington 
or at the United Nations. 

We have heard much about independent study. Honors 
programs, revision of the curriculum, interdisciplinary 
courses, cooperation with other colleges. 

And we have heard much about student dissatisfaction 
leading to picketing, revolt and then violence. Faculty 
members have joined in protest in many institutions. 

All of these things, plus concern as to the part the 
Federal and State Governments should play in indepen- 
dent higher education, are important and deserve con- 
sideration. 

Some of these innovations have been adopted by Salem 
College. The possibility of adoption of others is always 
present. 

Some, however, require the availability of more money; 
others, already under consideration, require and deserve 
more discussion and debate . . . What should be our 
stance, our conviction? 

Because of limited resources, Salem cannot do all the 
things many of us might wish . . . We must husband our 
resources and stretch them as far as they can go. 

However, the more important questions are these: How 
well do we use the facilities and equipment we have? How 
well do we relate to and cooperate with each other? Are 
we all putting forth our best efforts: Are we achieving 
full production, or are we on a self-imposed reduced work 
schedule? 

... If we reject rationalization as the only solution to 
our problems, if we can shake off the lethargy that threatens 
us all, if we stop looking over the fence to so-called greener

ON INTEREST . . . 

(continued from page 3) 
pastures, and if we can come to accept ourselves and 
recognize and develop the potential within us — then 
almost anything is possible in the way of improvement 
and enrichment and advance for the institution as a whole 
and for each individual in it. 

What I am talking about, I suppose, are attitudes that 
lead to involvement (intellectual and otherwise), mutual 
respect for each other, internal coherence and morale. How- 
ever, I am not suggesting that we agree on everything, 
because if we don't have dialogue and difference of opin- 
ion, we don't have anything. 

■We can develop a spirit that encompasses and en- 
courages individual differences, that flavors our discus- 
sions and arguments with mutual respect, and that some- 
how relates the youngest student to the oldest faculty 
member and administrator. 

... In an article written several years ago, before he 
became Secretary of Health, Education and 'Welfare, John 
W. Gardener (who has since resigned that post) indicated 
that one of the things that worried him most was that so 
many academic institutions are losing their sense of com- 
munity. 

"There was a time," he said, "when the traditional 
academic institution was a community. Those who spent 
time there knew they were members of a community. It 
had a 'personality' that could be described and loved — or 
laughed at. Undergraduates were often marked by its 
style and spirit. And the community was to a very con- 
siderable degree what its members wanted it to be." 

He said additionally that he found it hard to view with 
enthusiasm the college or university which has ceased to 
be a community with its own proud traditions and stand- 
ards and esprit. And he implied that it is only in the 
college community which enjoys internal coherence and 
morale that loyalties can be developed, loyalties which later 
can be shifted to other communities and other causes. 

I started out with an invitation to you to help preserve 
and strengthen Salem College, provided you think this 
type of institution is worth presen,'ing. You have an 
option in this matter, as in all others. 

Implicit in my invitation is the suggestion that to- 
gether we can make this a soundly and excitingly good 
year, not only in the classroom and studio and laboratory, 
but outside the academic program as well: in Student 
Government matters, in enrichment of the Honor Tradi- 
tion, in assembly programs, in all extra-curricular activities, 
even in the way we look and walk and sing and say 
"Hello." 

Against the national and world panorama of intrigue, 
politics, poverty, racial tension, inflation, and warfare in 
■Vietnam, this invitation may seem unimportant and trivial. 
But your response or lack of response to it can have a 
bearing on how you live and involve yourself someday in 
the larger society of which you are a part. 

If you decide to accept my invitation, a formal R.S."V.P. 
is not required. I will know — but more importantly, you 
will know — as the year moves on. 



ON SCIENCE . . . 

(continued from page 3) 
Sometime back the whole world held its breath and 
waited to see the outcome of an operation by a young 
surgeon in South Africa. The heart of an auto accident 
victim was successfully transplanted into the body of a 
patient dying of irreversible heart disease. But the patient's 
body recognized this new organ as foreign — an antigen 
— and began to produce antibodies to cause rejection of 
the intruder. To prevent this. Dr. Bernard and his team 
used a new class of drugs — the immunosupressives — 
to stop this action. But, as you know, this left the patient 
susceptible to any other foreign invader as well, and he 
died of pneumonia. From this apparent failure, the medical 
world learned — to the excitement of the entire world. 

To Be Announced: Sheep, selected and injected with 
antibodies from potential recipients, will be carefully raised 
from embryos to adults to become donors for their matched 
recipients! The supply of hearts for transplantation opera- 
tions will then become plentiful and free of the moral and 
legal restrictions now playing such a central role in 
present discussions. 

. . . 'What is the world's biggest killer! Mankind's 
greatest enemy? (other than himself!) The female mo- 
squito. Every year she kills more people than does cancer. 
She carries malaria, yellow fever, elephantiasis, encephalitis 
and many other deadly diseases. Every year, two million 
people die of malaria alone. 

But science is on the warpath against this tiny foe. The 
latest weapon is a water-white petroleum product which is 
poured into the water where the larvae are maturing. It 
spreads an imperceptably thin film over the water's sur- 
face — a single gallon covers an acre of water. When the 
wrigglers come up to breathe, they get a noseful and more, 
which goes deep into their bodies and won't wash out. 
They die from lack of air — and no mosquito can build 
up a resistance to this like they do to DDT. It harms 
nothing else in the water leaving birds, fish, plants and 
people alive to hopefully soon to hear the announcement: 
The extinction of the mosquito. Here is a chance for man 
to cause the extinction of an unwanted inhabitant of the 
earth — a bright note in the sad history of the passenger 
pigeon, whooping crane, great white heron and orher 
vanishing, man-destroyed creatures. 

To us in science, this work and all the thousands of 
other projects to be announced soon — this is excitement 
in learning. And, you can take an active part in this 
excitement, be it in the laboratory, the field, or just lay 
enthusiasm. So, on behalf of Science, may I invite you to 
rally with us in pursuit of the next exciting learning. To 
Be Announced!

COM = COMPUTER 

by Esther Mock 
A new, new language is being taught to Salem stu- 
dents. 

It goes 

Sal 1 

@ JET COP. A, YOUR NAME 
STAT: PROC OPTIONS (MAIN); 
ON END FILE GO TO CALCULATE; 
SUM = 0; I = <?; SUMSQ = *; 
and on and on. 

It's full of such words as SYSIN and SYSPRINT 
and SUBSTR, and of useful phrases such as "do 
group" and "do loop" and "bubble sort." 

All the freshmen are studying the language this 
year because it is Programming Language 1, and all 
the freshmen, the other students who wish to, and 
the faculty of Salem College are being given an orien- 
tation course in Programming for a computer. 

It's not easy. The simple start, shown above, is 
only the very beginning on an easy, sample program. 
With absolute exactness in form, punctuation and 
lingo the information must be fed, or the computer 
may send out a "gross error." Dr. Clauss of the His- 
tory department said it was like translating French 
into German without knowing either French or Ger- 
man. 

Begun this year, the short course in Programming 
is being provided for Salem College and 36 other 
schools in North Carolina by state and national foun- 
dations and industries through the Computer Orienta- 
tion Project of the Research Triangle. It is estimated 
that the outlay to Salem for the project including 
equipment, services, instructors and time on the com- 
puter will range between $3,000 and $4,000. 

On campus, Salem has a tele typewriter linked by 
Southern Bell to the IBM 360 computer at the Re- 
search Triangle. The computer is owned jointly by 
Duke, North Carolina State and the University of 
North Carolina. 

The student at Salem types out the program "in 
simple language" according to the manual, and in 
"logical sequence" as learned from the instructor. As 
the operator types, a paper tape is punched which is 
later fed into a reader and carried to the big com- 
puter. This computer can add, for example, one mil- 
lion eight-digit characters in a second, so obviously 
the computer action is not the slow work. 

Salem students have shown great interest in learn- 
ing how to use a computer and in finding out what a 
computer can do, and, equally important, what a 
computer can not do. 

Freshmen were scheduled at the beginning of the 
term for six sessions of one-hour each. The first 
group of 25 freshmen completed the course in Oc- 
tober, as did an almost equal number of volunteer 
upperclassmen, and the second groups are underway. 

In addition to class time, students are assigned 
home-work to be done in the computer rooms in 
the newly refinished Old Chapel basement. Assistance 
by trained programmers is available during this lab 
time, also.

Upperclassmen look no less bewildered than faculty 
in an early session on using the new language. 



Since the primary purpose of this introduction to 
the computer is for the exposure and benefit to the 
students, a main line of assistance was estabhshed 
through the faculty. A cram course was offered during 
Orientation Week in 1968, and the faculty attended 
four one-hour sessions in departmental groupings. For 
some faculty members also it was first-time exposure 
and most necessary for the understanding and en- 
couragement of student work in the field. In addition, 
the faculty could explore what different kinds of 
application could be made for use of the contemporary 
tool, the computer, in a liberal arts college. 

Dr. John Spitz of Economics, who headed the 
Computer Faculty Committee, said that since only 
quantified symbolism could be programmed, there 
were obvious limitations for ready use in disciplines 
outside mathematics, the sciences, and possibly music. 
He was speaking of liberal arts studies rather than ad- 
ministrative uses. 

In his private research. Dr. Spitz is currently 
using the computer to relate data on income, employ- 
ment and administrative locations of manufacturing 
in 18 states. 

What both faculty and students learned was that 
knowing how to program is a most useful tool, like 
knowing how to typewrite, and that there was no little 
green man enclosed in a huge console to do the think- 
ing. The computer will do a lot of work, fast, if the 
programmer has defined the problem, devised the 
algorithm, and coded the algorithm. How to attack a 
problem and how to plan for a solution is the special 
human talent. 




Immediate future possibilities for use of the com- 
puter in a college include a bank of ready-made pro- 
grams into which particular data could be plugged. 
Far beyond lies the possibility of a source of stored 
information which the computer could skan and spew 
forth as all available material on a requested subject. 

Meanwhile, during this year, the equipment and 
services will be supplied to the College and will be 
available for student and faculty use. Salem is very 
fortunate in having been selected for the Computer 
Orientation Project.

Something New 

The Salem Alumnae Association is planning a series 
of meetings in February and March, 1969, in an effort 
to have fewer meetings with larger attendance at each 
one. Seven key cities have been selected, AsheviUe, Char- 
lotte, Greensboro, Raleigh, Greenville, Fayetteville and 
Wilmington. All alumnae are welcome to attend any meet- 
ing either because of proximity, shopping advantage, or 
anticipation of meeting with a friend or former roommate. 
In fact, you may attend all meetings or as many as you 
like.

LUCIA TAYLOR HUDGENS was hon- 
ored in June with an open house and re- 
ception in recognition of her 90th birthday. 
A clipping from the Anderson Daily Mail 
of June 15, 1968, stated that former stu- 
dents, their wives and husbands were 
among the guests who gathered to honor 
her on this occasion. She was at one time 
the only woman on the teaching staff of 
Boys High in Anderson, and the only 
woman on the South Carolina Board of 
Education 12 years. Her teaching career, 
in addition to serving at Boys High, in- 
cluded an instructorship at Clemson Col- 
lege 13 summers where she also served 
as Clemson Dean of Women. When she 
retired from teaching at the age of 72, 
travelling became her hobby. Her travels 
have taken her to Europe, South America 
and Mexico.

Reunion and 13 living who were unable 
to attend. 

Since then death has claimed: MATTIE

ANNIE WALKER CUMMINGS, MARY

MOORE who passed away Friday, October 
11, 1968, after a long illness. Our deepest 
sympathy to her daughter Elizabeth Moore 
and to all of Maude's family. 

At Salem, Maude was a jolly, comical 
girl who liked to act the clown, but from 
the time she was at Salem she aspired to 
write poetry and to have a literary career. 
Much of her ambition was achieved. She 
wrote articles and editorials and poems for 
newspapers. Many of her poems have 
been published. She was the mother of 
eleven children, and a member of the 
American Pen Women. Maude has said, 
"For anything I have accomplished, I 
have to thank Salem College," and, "Salem 
to me is like a temple of gold, whose 
memory will never grow old." 

Our love and best wishes to ELIZA- 
BETH STIPE HESTER, confined in the 
Mary Stuart Nursing Home in Clemmons. 

I have heard from CARRIE OGBURN, 
SUSIE NUNN, HENRIETTA REID, 
PAULINE SESSOMS, MABEL SPAUGH 
and LELIA VEST. All are fine but slowing 
down. Our class would love to hear from; 
MAY FOLLIN, GRACE HANES, BESSIE 
HUGHES, MARY BAILEY, MAY Mc- 
MINN and LETA YOUNG. 

I would appreciate deeply a few lines 
of the high points in your life and love 
of Salem College from each of the living 
members of our Class of 1903, to report in 
January news for the Alumnae Bulletin. 
Love and a Merry Christmas.

You will be saddened to know that LIL 
FARISH SIZEMORE passed away Septem- 
ber 6th at the Presbyterian Home in High 
Point, N. C, where she had been for 
several years. We send loving sympathy 
to her daughter and son.

MARY CULPEPPER FOREMAN was at 
Nag's Head with some of her children in 
July. She says, "I am not swimming!", 
but who knows? She brings joy wherever 
she goes. 

Dear LIZA KNOX WINTERS has had 
no vacation because Rhett continues most 
painfully ill. An operation is scheduled 
soon, which, it is hoped, will relieve the 
severe pain. Her wonderfully brave grand- 
daughter, Mar>', graduated from N. C. 
State University in May, and it was in- 
deed a joyful time. Many relatives rejoiced 
with her, even her grandfather flew in 
from California. 

GLENN McDonald Roberts is the 

'butterfly'. She flits to Pa. to visit her 
daughter, via Va. to visit her son. Then 
to N. J. to her grandson's wedding. She 
says she'll be home in September. No 
doubt she will be off to S. C. next. I'm 
sure she feels better than she says she 
does! 

FAN POWERS SMITH wrote at Easter 
time of her Daughter Jess' interesting ac- 
tivities in the 'May Court Club' (like the 
Jr. League), and of Bert's delightful visit 
to England with her husband after many 
years. Fan was joyfully awaiting summer- 
time after a long winter and spring. 

I have had recenr pleasanr phone calls 
with HARRIET BARR and FLORENCE 
STOCKTON MASTEN. Both are, "pretty 
good", and are, as I am also, doing the 
best they can considering our ages and 
infirmaries! 

RUTH CRIST BLACKWELL is most 
active keeping up with her children and 
grandchildren. All of the news of them 
would fill a book! Will just say one 
granddaughter was married this summer 
and later had a most interesting Art 
exhibit here. She and her husband are 
soon to go to Korea with the Peace Corps. 
Another granddaughrer is enrolled at Salem 



Academy. A 24 year old grandson is 
teaching at M.I.T. "More to follow!" 

Vacations are over, so please write me 
news of yourselves.

1908: LURA GARNER PARKER, MARY 
CROMER KING, and DAISY ROMING-

to attend the service. Our deepest sympathy 
is extended to the families of Lura, Mary 
and Daisy. 

MABEL HINSHAW BLACKWELL is

A friend and I have had a delightful trip 
to New England. The tour was conducted

a marvelous guide and narrator. She is the 
former Ernestine Thies (Salem '31). 
Ernestine is currently serving on the

REUNION 

Alumnae Day on June 1st was a de- 
lightful occasion for those who returned 
to their Alma Mater for Class Reunions 
and just for the pleasure of being back 
at Salem for a Commencement. During 
the Coffee in the Foyer of the beautiful 
new Fine Arts Building many happy voices 
exchanged greetings while being served 
sugar cake and coffee. Would that every 
girl of 1909 could have been there to 
participate in the fellowship and rejoice in 
the pro.gress Salem has made. However, 
it is gratifying to see the "same old picture 
in a new frame". 

MAUDE CARMICHAEL WILLIAM- 
SON and DELLA JOHNSON WALKER 
joined MARY HOWE FARROW of 
Greenville, S. C. for the Alumnae Meeting 
and Luncheon. Later we stood at the 1909 
Class Memorial Meeting which is one of 
the granite lamp pedestals at the steps 
on upper campus. Many things we re- 
membered about the ceremony when our 
gift was presented to Salem, especially 
the forty-three "Indian head pennies" drop- 
ped one by one into the corner stone box. 
Wonder what they are worth today? 

Tentative plans for our sixtieth Class 
reunion were discussed and it was decided 
that we would make a special effort to 
get together one more time for Alumnae 
Day 1969. EDITH WILLINGHAM 
WOMBLE wants all the girls who can 



come to meet in her home for a "Get-to- 
gether" which is a delightful incentive to 
come. Each of you will be hearing more 
about our plans later on but it is time 
now to mark the date on your calendar 
and include it in your schedule for next 
Commencement at Salem. 

Please make a special effort this time. 
Greetings to one and all the girls of 1909 
who read this brief communication.

Girls, thank you for your prompt replies 
to my S.O.S. cards. Out of a class of 21 
girls, 1 1 are living. We are proud of our 
girls. 

Read about us . . . RUTH GREIDER 
has just been down from Bethlehem, Pa. 
to see her sister who is in a Rest Home 
here. Ruth is fine and says as all of you 
that "God Willing" we will all be here 
in 1970 to celebrate our 60th Anniversary. 

FLOSSIE MARTIN stays so busy. She 
is Church Clerk to First Baptist Church 
in Mocksville, also she is 'granddame' of 
the Library history department. One side 
of History section is marked "Flossie Mar- 
tin Historical Collection". She is collect- 
ing much material about Daniel Boone. 
She lives in her original home by herself 
but has much company. 

RUTH MEINUNG says "the last years 
or so have not been eventful for me. I 
moved to another apartment. I have spent 
a good deal of time recovering from a 
broken ankle and two major operations 
but am fine now. Salem has changed so 
much. You girls come back in 1970 to 
help us celebrate." 

MARIA PARRIS UPCHURCH says she 
had a wonderful three weeks in Europe. 
Her granddaughter, Maria Jenkins, a grad- 
uate of Salem Academy in 1968 is making 
her debut in Raleigh in September — is 
one of the leaders of the Ball. 

ELEANOR BUSTARD CUNNING- 
HAM says last fall she went to Greece and 
Yugoslavia and had fun. Her grandson, 
a captain in the Air Force, is home from 
Viet Nam. He now lives in Cleveland, 
Ohio where he works for Dan River Mills. 
Her second son, Thomas, lives in Annapo- 
lis, Maryland and has retired from the 
Navy. She is coming in 1970. 

BEULAH PETERS CARRIG has had a 
hard time. Last year she was in the hospi- 
tal with a heart attack for three months. 
Then she went to live with her daughter 
at this address: c/o Watts, Wee Burn 
Lane, Darien, Conn. 06820. She was in 
the hospital this summer but says she is 
coming to Commencement next year as 
her daughter, Mary French has her 25th 
Reunion. 

Now the town girls . . . MARIETTA 
REICH SHELTON is now recovering from 
a broken ankle. She says she visited many 
western states last year by car. Grand 
Canyon, Yosemite Valley, etc. 

LILIAN SPACH DALTON says she has 
been to Florida to see her daughter and is 
living a busy life. Come on girls for 
1970. 

MARY POWERS says she is living 
alone in her old home on Poplar Street. 
She goes here and there and is happy. 

And as for your secretary, you've had 
enuf as I am happy in teaching piano 
and busy helping Old Salem become re- 
stored. 

From the Alumnae Office: Grace sent 
in her class notes just before she under- 
went a cataract operation. We are happy to 
report that she is out of the hospital and 
has made a fine recovery.

published a book of poems this year called 
"Backyard Birding in Rhyme". The copy 
that came to me is delightful. She is also 
sending copies to the college library as

Your class Secretary had a delightful 
visit to Salem this spring, and so, as they 
say, "this is the news" to bring you up 
to date as of March, 1968. 

MARGARET BLAIR McCUISTON en- 
tertained all available Winston-Salem mem- 
bers for luncheon at her home. Those 
present were MARY GROGAN HUGHES, 
LUCY HADLEY CASH, NELLIE MES- 
SICK MOORE, MAE NORMAN, ETHEL 
REICH, KATHARINE SPACH BYNUM, 
HELEN VOGLER, PATTIE WRAY 
WOMACK FETZER, and CLETUS MOR- 
GAN BLANTON. Added to the group 
was my good friend who has been to 
Winston-Salem so many times that she is 
practically a member of the class. She is 
Kay Ayre, from St. Johns, Newfound- 
land, with whom I was long associated 
at Abbot Academy. 

We had a very jolly time, and Helen 
told of her experiences on her South 
American tiip last fall. ETHEL Mc- 
GALLIARD could not come, and 
MAUDE KERNER had planned to but 
could not. A few days later we met at her 
house for a dessert bridge. Maude's de- 
lightful daughter-in-law joined us for the 
very good time which all of us enjoyed. 

Spring was at hand, and a walking tour 
around the campus and Old Salem showed 
many changes since we were together in 
1964. Memorial Hall has gone (now a 
parking lot) and the Office Building has 
a restored back porch. The new Fine Arts 
Building, on the notth side of the 'Pleasure 
Grounds' — spanning the ravine — is all 
you have heard about it and more, and 
provides all the facilities which Salem has 
needed over the years. West Gate Hall 



has gone, leaving the restored South Hall 
greatly enhanced. 

The Old Salem restoration is indeed 
interesting and satisfying. A trip to Salem, 
if you can make it, would be rewarding, 
and Dr. Gramley is always glad to wel- 
come any 1914ers.

The members will regret the passing of 
MARIE MERRITT SHORE, Honorary 
member; of LUCILLE WILLIAMSON 
WITHERS and ALICE MASTEN, both 
were in Academy and Freshman Class with 
us. Also, the death of OLIVIA MILLER'S 
mother on March 31st. We send deepest 
sympathy to all the families. 

CORNELIA ELLIOTT LUKINS' daugh- 
ter, Mildred, writes that her mother is in 
the Mt. Holly Nursing Home, Louisville, 
Kentucky, She has hardening of the arter- 
ies, knows no one nor anything. To quote, 
"It is very sad but I think Mother's Salern 
friends should know of her condition." 
We appreciate Mildred writing in answer 
to card requesting news. If you can write 
Miss Mildred Lukins, 1029 Alts Vista 
Road, Louisville, Ky. 40105, she will give 
message to her mother when Cornelia is 
better and we all hope that will be very 
soon. 

FRANCES DOUB RAINEY has passed 
35 years on the Board and as Secretary 
of the Winston-Salem Civic Music Series. 
She has also been on the Board of the 
Arts Council, since it was organized. She 
and Bill visited their youngest daughter, 
Martha, Mrs. Russell Kokahr, in New York 
City, early in the Summer. In August, they, 
three daughters, Connie, Jeanne and Mar- 
tha with husbands and two grandsons 
joined LOLA DOUB GARY, her husband, 
two daughters, Marion O'Keefe and Pa- 
tricia Sleby, with four grandchildren, at 
their summer home on Pawley's Island, 
S. C, for annual reunion. 

HARRIETT GLOVER BURFOOT 
writes that she visited Fredericksburg, 
Washington and Arlington in June. She 
plans to visit Mattie Reid Harrill in 
August. 

It was so nice to hear from lONE 
FULLER PARKER. She had just re- 
turned from South Dakota tour, saw 
Rushmore Monument, "a marvel", the 
Badlands, "a miniature Grand Canyon", 
the Passion Play and other places. 

OLIVIA writes, "What has happened 
to class 1916? Several Salem Bulletins, 
NO NEWS!!" It is just that the girls do 
NOT send me news. I write cards asking, 
NO answers, so NO NEWS in Bulletin. 
I appreciate hearing from these and having 
this much news now. The August Bulletin 
was Alumni and Class Reunions. 

NANNIE and I stay very busy at home, 
have had several short trips this Summer 
and the family coming and going a lot. We 
belong to several Patriotic organizations, 
will be attending two State Conventions, 
one National and many regular meetings 
in October and November. We send love 
and greetings to all, as does RUBY RAY 
CUNNINGHAM and OLIVIA MILLER. 
I am sure all others do same, but these 
specifically requested me to speak for 
them. 

PLEASE SEND NEWS AT ANY TIME 
— I'LL GET IT IN AT THE RIGHT 
TIME.

RACHEL LUCKENBACH HOLCOMB 
is President of the N. C. United World 
Federalists, and a member of the National 
Council of World Federalists. She left 
September 20th for Washington to attend 
a meeting of this group. The organization's 
purpose is to promote peace through law 
in the world. Members of this organization 
include judges, lawyers, presidents of col- 
leges and other notables, including Nor- 
man Cousins, past editor of the Saturday 
Review. 

Rachel is also on the Woman's Plan- 
ning Committee of the Japanese Interna- 
tional Christian University in Tokyo. She 
will attend their meeting in New York 
during October. 

Rachel has for many years been in- 
terested in world affairs. Perhaps you 
knew her father was a local Moravian 
minister. She has been presented a citation 
as one of the instigators in planning the 
Church Center for the United Nations. 
Rachel writes, "Our first idea was to have 
just a small place at the U.N. for Chris- 
tians in America and U.N. delegates, their 
families and staff to meet and know each 
other — and to spread friendship and 
understanding around the world." This 
'small place' is now a 12-story building 
across the street from the United Nations.

I have had several favorable notes from 
some of the girls, regarding the picmre 
and write up of the Reunion of 1918, 
which I appreciated. I have also received 
a note from Dr. Gramley thanking us for 
the donation of $473.00, to be used for a 
computer terminal. I, too, was pleased 
with the amount, since we were a class 
of 25 graduates. A personal invite from 
him to visit Salem, at any time, to all 
of us. 

HELEN LONG FOLLETT writes of a 
nice month's vacation in Maine while we 
were sweltering in the South. She hopes 
to come South this Fall when the wea- 
ther is cooler. 

SALLIE DYSON COLEMAN has had 
a sad summer. She lost her husband on 
June 2. Tom had been an invalid for three 
years. On July 24th, her daughter lost 
her husband. Sallie is planning to sell her 
home and move into an apartment. Will 
send her address later. 

A lovely note came from Hazel Flack, 
the daughter of SUE CAMPBELL WATTS. 
Sue passed away August 5, after having a 
bad fall, complicated by a heart condi- 
tion. Sue had such a good time, as 
we all did, at Reunion. She was a loyal 
Salem girl. We shall miss her. 

A note from BELLE LEWTER WEST 
commenting on our Reunion. What an 
enjoyable time she had. Her daughter, 
Carolyn, and her granddaughter from the 
state of Washington visited with her and 
her husband. Belle spends a lot of time 
gardening. Her gardening time is spent 
on wild flowers, ferns, daylilies and ca- 
mellias. She visits her sister Florine daily 
at a nursing home. 

Belle and I are planning to spend a 
couple of days at Salem in the Fall. Any- 
one care to join us? 

A nice long letter from HENRIETTA.

In fact, I've heard twice since she and' 
George have gone back to California. Al- 
though the temperature gets quite high, 
there is always a wonderful breeze. She 
and George are spending a weekend soon 
at Leguna Beach and another weekend 
in Saivang, a lovely Danish Village. A 
trip to Hawaii is planned for the spring. 
She enjoys living in California, but misses 
her friends. She says, "be sure and visit 
me," to all. 

After October 1st, EVELYN ALLEN 
TRAFTON'S address will be Mrs. H. A. 
Trafton, 1839 Irving Street, Sarasota, Flori- 
da 33579. Evelyn and Virginia have 
bought a house, "sight unseen" but 
Blanche and Hallie, her two sisters, think 
it is most desirable. She will be about six 
blocks from Hallie. Evelyn's knee is much 
better. She is hoping that Florida will 
help, as much as medication and therapy. 

A lovely note from LILLIAN BLUE 
McEACHERN told me how much she 
had enjoyed our Reunion. She loved seeing 
the wonderful changes at Salem and 
"tlie girls." She is bothered with arthritis 
in her hands and does not play the piano 
as much as she would like. 

My husband retired in July and since 
we have had such a hot summer, we have 
been to the beaches and the mountains. 
We are saving our traveling until next 
year. 

Best wishes until next time. 

From the Alumnae Office: A note from 
Bertha Moore ('20) says she has seen 
NITA HIGHSMITH. "I passed through 
Fayetteville in March and visited with 
her about an hour. She lost her mother 
last fall."

REUNION 

MAUDE GILMORE LENDE and 
Henry had a wonderful trip to Scandi- 
navia in May. They were thrilled to meet 
Henry's relatives, who live in Southern 
Norway and then to do sight-seeing in 
Denmark and Sweden. 

Their only child, Hilah, leads quite an 
adventurous life with her husband, who 
is in the Canadian Wild Life Service. 
This year they took their two little children 
on some of the rivers of the Northwest 
Territories, with Indian guides managing 
very strange boats. 

LE GRAHAM MARSH'S summer cen- 
tered in Virginia and Massachusetts. She 
visited in the new home of Joanne 
Swasey Foreman '47, daughter of EUNICE 
HUNT SWASEY. Eunice is librarian in 
the new Mechanicsville Library in Han- 
over County. Le then flew to Plymouth, 
Mass., visited a friend of Sweet Briar days, 
and together they rambled over Cape Cod. 

NANNETTE RAMSEUR ALLEN says 
she and her husband are enjoying retire- 
ment. He is doing some writing, and 
preaches somewhere almost every Sunday. 
She stays busy with a number of organiza- 
tions. "They have seven grandchildren, the 
oldest being six and one-half years old. 
Their children all live in the South, so, 
for the most part their travel revolves 
around their family. Please note their new 
address; 38 West Church Street, Bethle- 
hem, Pa. 18018. 

MARY HUNTER and John Hackney 
visited Mag Newland early in the sum- 
mer, then on to Echo Inn at Henderson- 
ville. Their children and "Grands" have 
had busy summers — some at Topsail 
Beach, others at Morehead and more tour- 



ing the West. 

DORIS COZART SCHAUM'S oldest 
granddaughter, Ruth Walston, is making 
her debut at Raleigh in September. 

MARY LANCASTER BROADDUS had 
a lovely trip to Franklin, N. C, visiting 
children and grandchildren. The children 
moved to Athens, Georgia August 31st, 
where Peg will get her Master's in 
Education and Jim will get his Ph.D. in 
Forestry. Mary and Dick were leaving 
shortly for a vacation at Long Boat Key, 
Sarasota, Florida. They play quite a bit 
of Mastet Point Duplicate. They are both 
Jr. Masters, and hope soon to become 
Life Masters. 

MAG NEWLAND returned August 8 
from an exciting ttip to Spain, Portugal 
and dear old England. She loved seeing 
all the ancient treasures — in the cathe- 
drals of Spain, the magnificent scenery of 
Portugal, visiting with old friends in 
England; but "actually, the highlight of 
my trip was a visit to Chartwell, Winston 
Churchill's home." She is now on her 
mountain top at Little Switzerland. 

FRANK and FARRELL WHITE would 
like to announce the arrival of a brand 
new granddaughter, Frances Lenoir White, 
born August 10. The young lady has two 
brothers, ages eight and eleven. Franki 
entertained the Salem Club in June, at 
which time Le Graham visited her for 
the week-end. The Whites plan a trip 
in October to New York and the New 
England states, celebrating their 44th an- 
niversary. 

During the summer VIRGINIA WIG- 
GINS HORTON and husband. Ham, have 
been involved in festivities fot family 
debutantes and brides. Their son, Hamil- 
ton Horton, Jr., is campaigning for seat 
No. 3 in the State Legislatute. They ate 
now looking forward to Virginia's Family 
Reunion in Eastern Carolina, and to a 
trip thtu New England to Quebec and 
Nova Scotia. Their oldest granddaughter, 
Virginia Ellen Hoke, has come from 
Marion, S. C, to entet Salem Academy. 

EMILY VAUGHN KAPP says she 
hasn't done anything, but to me she 
sounds mighty busy. One job in research 
was the use of Moravian Music in Wa- 
chovia. She considers it "about the most 
interesting work I ever did," and she 
thought the idea of her researching in 
music would amuse us. For the past three 
months she has served as a hostess at 
Historic Bethabara, and filled in part time 
at Old Salem. She is retired from her 
regular work there. She has also been to 
the Alumnae Clubs at Oxford and Ra- 
leigh, speaking for Old Salem. 

EDNA CUMMINGS PASCHAL'S son 
James and family live in Knoxville, Tenn- 
essee. He has been associated with Reynolds 
Metals Co. for sixteen years. His family 
consists of one daughter, Beth, who is 13, 
and a son Zan, nine. They visited here 
on Labor Day week-end and of course 
Grandmother was very happy. Edna, like 
the rest of us, can't realize that next 
spring will bring our 50th Reunion. 

MARTHA McKELLAR REYNOLDS is 
still enjoying her retitement. Tho' she 
had no daughter to give to Salem, two 
of her rnost cherished protegees fulfilled 
that longing — one graduated in piano in 
1967 and the other will graduate at the 
Academy next spting. Martha hopes to at- 
tend that graduation at the time of our 
50th Reunion. She says her husband often 
took delight in quoting "The Jews have 
Jerusalem, the Mohammedans have their 
Mecca and Martha has her Salem." 

SARA LILLY HENRY writes she spent 
most of the summer at WrightsviUe Beach. 



Her cottage was next door to DORIS 
SCHAUMS daughter, Doris Walston. "Our 
Doris was visiting and helping chaperone 
a Deb house party." Sara Lilly's oldest 
grandson is a junior at Wake Forest and 
another at Wingate. 

FAY HUNTLEY IVES returned to 
Winston-Salem in 1967. She began a 
professional career in High Point, living 
there from 1940-1951. After study at Co- 
lumbia University and the University of 
North Carolina she became Casework Su- 
pervisor in Guilford County. She and her 
husband, Sidney Ives III, first moved to 
Geotgia and then to Sanford, Florida. 
Soon after moving to Florida she joined 
the Florida State Welfare Department. 
Later she was Executive Director of Family 
Counsel Agency until she returned to 
Winston-Salem. She and her husband did 
extensive traveling to Europe, Asia, South 
America, Mexico and many far away 
islands, by car, plane and ship, taking a 
month's leave of absence each year "for 
about ten yeats. She is now doing volun- 
teer counseling at the First Baptist Church. 
Fay is perfectly content to be here with 
many loved ones, both family and friends. 
Her son. Bill Spencer, and his wife, Nell 
Penn ( Salem graduate ) , and het daughter, 
Mary Jo Mackintosh, with her son S'andy' 
keep an eye out for het welfare which 
makes her very happy. 

ELIZABETH and Ralph Ogburn had 
two lovely visits at Hound Eats. Their 
friend's home overlooks both Grandmother 
and Grandfather Mountains and they 
feasted their eyes on all the beauty. Both 
keep busy here at home with vaiious ac- 
tivities, among others, sharing their gor- 
geous roses with friends. 

MARION and Marvin Robbins and the 
Stocktons have nice 'phone chats quite 
often. Marion says she and Marvin have 
been home all summer. They enjoy their 
two little granddaughters, Marion and 
Walton Blackburn, and just now they are 
very much interested in the addition to 
Ervin and Ed's home. 

MAGGIE MAE and Ralph Stockton are 
trying to beat the heat right now, after 
spending some time at Fort Lauderdale in 
the spring. They were at Lake Junaluska 
tor a church conference in July. Their 
grandchildren are growing like weeds and 
It s marvelous to have them living here in 
Winston-Salem. Ellen Stockton is in her 
second year at Salem Academy and Me^^

At this time (September 15) BRIGHT 
McKEMIE JOHNbON and Frank are

RUTH CANNON WILSON, 1U5 S.

to the Alumnae Office: "I am now a 
widow. Saw RUTH CROWELL DOWDY 
and ANNIS SMOOT TROUT on my last 
visit to North Catolina." We are delighted 
to hear from Ruth again and about the 
other two classmates. 

No personal word came from KATHA- 
RINE DENNY HORNE, but we are de- 
lighted to see her name on the Memorial 
Scholarship list. It is good to see the 
names of ELIZA GASTON MOORE POL- 
LARD and BLOSSOM HUDNELL 
THOMAS on the Alumnae Fund Class 
list. We wish we had news to give in 
this column of Denny, Eliza Gaston, and 
Blossom. Maybe they and others will 
drop us a note about themselves. 

Later news of the Haupert family: A. 
Peter Haupert, M.D., trained in medicine 
with specialty in surgery and also trained 
in theology, was ordained on September 29 
by Bishop Kenneth G. Hamilton. Peter, 
Joan and David, Deborah and Jim flew 
to Nicaragua October 1 where Peter will 
direct hospital and nutsing school for the 
Thaeler Hospital in Bilwaskatma. 

Sadness has touched the lives of four 
of our classmates. The sister-in-law of 
EDITH HANES SMITH died early in the 
summer as did BESSIE PFOHL'S sister-in- 
law. EUNICE GRUBBS BECK'S husband 
died in September and also PUD GRIFFIN 
DAVIS' mother. Pud was just out of the 
hospital at the time of her mother's death, 
but was able to make the trip to Wilson. 
Our deepest sympathy is sent to these 
girls and their families.

Our sympathies go to the families of 
two of our class who have died — FT.f7.A- 
BETH BALDRIDGE REITER of Cleve- 
land, Ohio, and AVA STAFFORD Mc- 
DONOUGH of Charlotte, N. C. 

RUTH JAMES stays busy, even though 
she has tetired from teaching, as she often 
serves as a director with Moore Tours. 
(Wouldn't it be pleasant to travel with 
her?) 

ELGIE NANCE MYERS has had a 
family reunion — complete with all 
ptesent except for the newest grandson who 
was too young to leave his Oklahoma 
home. She, Noah, THELMA JACKSON 
BIAS and Clyde have been on a fishing 
ttip and stay at the Bias' beach home. 

MARY OGBURN BLACKBURN re- 
ports continued traveling and counseling 
concerning African Violets. She, as well 
as many of you, commented on our 
HOT summer. 

IRENE McMINN CANTRELL'S son 
has retutned ftom Viet Nam and is now 
stationed in Washington, D. C. She tells 



us more about LUCILLE GLENN TYLER 
who recently visited her. The two of them 
"talked half the night." Traveling with 
Lucille was her lovely daughter who works 
in New York City. ( Hope Lucille visits 
Salem on one of her travels. ) 

THELMA HEDGEPATH MORTON has 
come out of retirement and has returned 
to teaching. Master Scott Bryan Morton 
of Charlotte is the newest arrival among 
her four grandchildren, 

"E. P." PARKER ROBERTS writes that 
due to a slipped disc, this has been a 
"lost summer" for her. After two stays 
in the hospital she is home and "having 
to take life easy." (A new thing for 
her! ) Son, Surry, now a Captain in the 
Medical Corps has joined the Green Berets 
and should return home January 29, 1969. 
Grandson, Bennett, Jr., is crawling every- 
where. 

CORA FREEZE is quite busy caring for 
her semi-invalid aunt who lives with her. 
Every now and then she plays a few hands 
of bridge. 

MARGARET WILLIFORD CARTER 
finds her family the center of her in- 
terests — as do so very many of our 
class. Several of her grandchildren are 
making excellent records for themselves 
in sports. They received much encourage- 
ment from their daddy who is a sports 
writer for the Neirs and Ohserter. 

TABBA REYNOLDS WARREN and 
Charles have remrned from a five months 
stay in France, Italy, Spain and Pottugal. 
They had a very interesting and pleasant 
time as they traveled back and forth from 
their home base in Nice. Since their remrn 
to U. S. A. they have been in Virginia 
and West Virginia. They will keep their 
apartment in New York City for the 
present. 

While I was visiting in Birmingham, 
Alabama, I was able to chat via tele- 
phonp with RUTH WOMELSDORF 
MATTHEWS. All of her children and 
grandchildren live in the same city, so 
she sees them often. Daughter. Tudy. does 
much volunteer work at the Birmingham 
Children's Hospital. It was certainly a 
pleasure to talk with Ruth.

I sent cards to half of the class who 
did not write notes at Christmas. So far 
I have received replies from JESS BYRD 
and LUCILLE CARROLL SMITH. Jess 
says that she taught two classes of college 
freshman English at the N. C. School of 
the Arts last year. She says she enjoyed 
the work but missed Salem. Lucille says 
that her husband has retired and her son 
has taken over the farming operations in 
Scotland Neck. They have one grand- 
daughter, five years old, whom they en- 
joy so much. 

RACHEL PHILLIPS HAYES is over- 
joyed to have son Ricky home again. He 
returned from Viet Nam in December and 
is now stationed at Cherry Point. Rachel 



taught remedial reading at her school dur- 
ing the summer. 

1 had the pleasure of seeing ELIZA- 
BETH KLUnZ YOWELL while I was 
visitmg at WrightsviUe iieach during the 
summer. I met the members of her de- 
lightful family. 

f have had several telephone conversa- 
tions with JENNIE WOLFE STANLEY 
recently. I call her when visiting nieces 
in Charlotte and Matthews. She has had 
visits from members of her family this 
summer. Jennie enjoys golf for recreation 
and exercise. 

BESSIE CLARK RAY and LUCILLE 
REID FAGGE paid surprise visits to Rosa 
Caldwell Sides '26 and me in August. 
They came especially to see Rosa, who 
was recuperating from a recent illness. 
Bessie's daughter, Vivian, and family have 
moved to Smithheld. 

A. P. SHAFFNER SLYE and Ronald 
visited Ron's sister in Michigan during the 
summer. In August Bill's family came 
from Houston for a visit. 

Our class members were deeply sad- 
dened by the death of VIRGINIA RED- 
DING JOHNSON of Asheboro. Our sym- 
pathy to members of her family. 

I am entertaining all Salem alumnae 
in the Concord Area at a Salem tea in 
November. I'm serving hot Moravian 
Tea, which the Motavians served to 
George Washington on his visit to Bethle- 
hem, Pa., and Moravian Christmas cook- 
ies from Salem. After the tea we'll dis- 
tribute Salem cookies to be sold by the 
members for the benefit of a scholarship 
fund. I am chairman of the sale this year. 

Please write your correspondent a Christ- 
mas note. Your classmates are interested. 
I have many expressions of appreciation 
from our regular class news contributors 
which number eighteen — more than fifty 
per cent. Thanks to those who have been 
so thoughtful through the years.

LUCY CURRIE JOHNSON'S husband 
has been serving as Acting President of 
Davidson College during the summer 
until the installation of the new President 
in the fall. Her daughter, Tish (class of

'64) and husband are moving back to 
Davidson so that he, just having passed 
the bar from Duke Law School, will be 
able to practice in Charlotte. Son Currie 
has recently entered Air Force Officers 
Training and is working toward becoming 
a pilot. Martha, the younger daughter, 
soon enters college, having won a fine 
scholarship. Lucy, herself, has taken a job 
in an insurance office, now that her chil- 
dren have "Hown the coop." 

SUE JANE MAUNEY RAMSEUR has 
had an exciting summer at Montreat, where 
she and MARY AYRES PAYNE CAMP- 
BELL had fun doing ceremics. Sue Jane 
and husband Jack stayed home and let 
their children travel the rest of the sum- 
mer. One son, a recent graduate of David- 
son College, is in Europe and soon re- 
turns ro the States to enter Army Signal 
Corps as 2nd Lieutenant. Another son had 
six weeks in R.O.T.C. training and tiaveled 
to California this summer. He is a senior 
at Presbyterian College in Clinton, S. C. 
this year. Sue Jane kept her nine-months- 
old grandchild for its parents to take a 
vacation and — spoiled her! Sue continues 
with her kindergarten and expects a busy 
and interesting winter. 

In a letter to The Alumnae Office GRACE 
MARTIN BRANDAUER writes, "It has 
been a teal boost for me during all of 
rhese almost fifteen years of our missionary 
service in Makassar, to be able to keep in 
touch with Salem through the Bitlletin 
and other publicity materials sent out." 
Grace and her husband are returning to 
the States shortly for their year of fur- 
lough and will be living at 4241 Robbins 
Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19135.

KITTY BROWN WOLFE is making 
good her promise to return more often to 
North Carolina now that a son and daugh- 
ter are living here. MARGARET 
SIEWERS TURNER and I had coffee with 
Kitty at Pat's home ( Mrs. Richard Krew- 
son, 107 Faulkner Drive, Greensboro) in 
November. 

It was good to receive the following 
lettet from RUTH MAIER EARNHARDT, 
(Mrs. E. Irvin) Box 636, ThomasviUe, 
N. C: 

"Even though my sojourn at Salem 
was brief (my junior year), I feel that 
I am truly a Salem alumna and feel grate- 
ful to have two wonderful alma maters, 
the other being Marietta College, Marietta, 
Ohio. 

I always enjoy the Salem College 
Bulletin and invariably turn immediately 
to the class notes. I have such a feeling 
of warmth as well as nostalgia when I 
read news of girls I used to know and 
have never forgotten. 

One of my new year's resolutions is to 
become mote a part of the Salem alumnae 
picture and renew some old acquaintances. 
In the meantime, let me introduce my 
family. I live in ThomasviUe with my 
husband. Irvin, whom I met while I was 
at Salem. Our oldest son. Gene, a North- 
western graduate, is associate ptofessor of 
history at Pfeiffer College, where he lives 
with his wife, Barbara, and two little 
boys. Our middle son, Jim, a Davidson 
graduate, completed his residency in pedi- 
atrics at Western Reserve University Hos- 
pital in Cleveland in June and is located 
at the U.S.A. hospital in Camp Zama 
in Japan. He will be there for two yeats 
but fortunately his wife, Keith, and little 
boy can be with him. Our youngest son, 
Tom, is a senior at Davidson College 
where he is president of the student body. 



He plans to enter law school in the fall." 

ANNA PRESTON SHAFFNER'S Trudy 
was married at noon, August 17th, in the 
Chapel of Home Moravian Church. She is 
now Mrs. Powell Winstead, living in 
Charlotte where Powell is teaching. 

FRANCES CALDWELL PREVOSTS'S 
daughter, Beth (Salem '65) is Nutrition 
Consultant with the State Board of Health. 
She is currently serving 16 counties west 
of Asheville. 

ARAMINTA SAWYER PIERCE and 
MARGARET SIEWERS TURNER had 
weddings in their families during the 
summer. Araminta's son, Charles, married 
Mary C. Everett in July, and Margaret's 
Charles, was married August 24th to 
Laura Davis. 

In March I had a wonderful and busy 
time in Seattle and San Francisco. My 
experiences in a Chinese School with 
children who had just arrived from Hong 
Kong made me realize that children are 
the same the world over. I wish there had 
been time for me to contact Salem girls 
while on the 'West Coast. 

It was good to hear news of the class 
of '32 at this year's Alumnae luncheon. 
■WILHEMINA LINEBERRY has retired 
from the business world and MARY 
MITCHELL NORMAN ELIASON keeps 
very busy with her teaching responsibilities. 

My plans for the summer changed be- 
cause of a broken knee cap. This is my 
first fracture and I hope it is my last! 

Prom the Alumnae Office: 'With re- 
gret we report the death of ELEANOR 
IDOL, September 23 in 'Washington, D. C. 
Our deepest sympathy goes to her family. 

Eleanor entered government service in 
1935. She retired in August as chief li- 
brarian of the National Interdepartmental 
Seminar of the Foreign Service Institute 
after a distinguished career in government. 
She was awarded the State Department's 
Meritorius Service Medal, presented by 
Ambassador Olcott Demring on August 
2nd, 1968. In a personal note of sympathy 
to a member of the family. Dean Rusk 
said, in part, "Miss Idol was a dedicated 
public servant. She was an inspiration to 
the some 2,000 students who knew her 
through her management of the National 
Interdepartmental Seminar Library." 

A note from Ruth Piatt Lemly to the 
Alumnae Office brings the distressing news 
of the death of her sister, REBECCA 
PIATT DOBLER. Becky died suddenly 
following a stroke on September 30, 1968. 
At the time Becky was living in Durham, 
N. C. with her mother, Marion Sheppard 
Piatt ( '99 ) . Since the death of her hus- 
band, she had been working in the Duke 
University Library. Our deep sympathy to 
Mrs. Piatt, Ruth and the family.

The Class of 1934 is fast heading for a 
very important reunion in the spring of 
1969. How fast those years in between 
have flown! Thirty-five short, eventful 
years! 

Throughout this time, some of the class 
members have kept in touch. On occasions 
some even see and visit with one another. 

ZINA VOLOGODSKY POPOV, who 
has lived in Turramurra, Australia — a 
suburb of Sydney — after having to leave 
China sixteen years ago, was at Salem last 
winter during her six months around the 
wotld tour with her engineer, industrialist 
husband of thirty-two years. Since leaving 
school, she has been back to the United 
States twice, to Europe three times, to 



Japan and the Far East twice. Also, she 
has taught in a private secondary school 
for girls for twelve years. Now she is a 
housewife — "a hateful term" she says. 
Zina's son lives in London; her daughter, 
who recently married an Australian bar- 
rister, near her and her husband. Since 
both of her children graduated from Syd- 
ney University and left home, Zina and 
husband are cheered by the "junior mem- 
bers of the family" — Pablo, a Doberman, 
and Sisane, a golden retriever. Zina sends 
best wishes to all of her former class- 
mates. 

MAGGIE HOLLEMAN RICHARDSON, 
who lives in Stokesdale and teaches Eng- 
lish and Spanish at Northwest Guilford, 
gets over to see KATHLEEN ADKINS 
BLACK'WELL at least once a year. Three 
of her sons are in college, one in graduate 
school at the University of Colorado, study- 
ing veterinary medicine. The eleven year 
old will be with his parents a few more 
years. During summer vacation, one of the 
sons repaid the visit of an exchange stu- 
dent from South America who has lived 
in their home. Meanwhile, Maggie was 
touring a good part of the United States — 
especially the western part. Also, she went 
to Mexico. 

RUTH 'WOLFE 'WARING is very 
proud of her son who has accomplished 
much. Ruth and her husband are planning 
a trip abroad — a trip postponed on ac- 
count of her husband's illness. 

MILDRED HANES GENET lives in 
Natural Bridge, 'Virginia, but still visits 
her old homeplace in Pine Hall, where 
her sister Louise lives. Her son, Johnnie, 
is in college; her daughter, Mary Eliza, 
who spends much time with Aunt Louise 
and cousin David, is in high school. 

During the summer, GEORGIA HUNT- 
INGTON 'WYCHE had a visit with 
RUTH CLE'WELL, who was visiting her 
cousin Laura Howell Schorr, '24. Ruth 
is completing a book started by her father 
who died two years ago. 

This year KAtHLEEN ADKINS 
BLACK'WELL has thirty-three wiggly, sec- 
ond graders at Pine Hall, where she lives 
with her husband and ninety-seven year 
old mother-in-law. In August, husband 
Garland was dangerously ill with double 
pneumonia and remembers nothing of one 
week. Although he is still weak, he works. 

Sometimes the little sisters of the Class 
of '34 (sophomores) come into the scene. 

Kathleen sees Elizabeth Smith, librarian 
of Northwest Forsyth, often. Although Lib 
is not well physically, she is doing a won- 
derful job and is an inspiration to fellow 
teachers and students. 

Bonnie Jean Shore Taylor carries on 
her father's work in the bank at Rural 
Hall. Her daughter is president of the 
present senior class at Salem. 

THE SPIRIT OF SALEM 
Your walls. Oh, Salera. are still strong! 
Your inspiration helps keep us from wrong. 
Your beauty lives in the mind's eye. 
Our love for you can never die! 
May you forever wisdom unfold to gene- 
rations as yet untold. 
May work by former ones done never 

lose influence under the sun. 
Salemites — past, present, future — join 

hand in an everlasting spirit band. 

— Kathleen Adkins Blackwell

ence works in trust dept. of a bank there. 
She is almost a Yankee. Joy lives just a

Please let us hear from you, and let's have 
a great reunion!

NANCY HELSABECK FOWLER writes 
that their oldest daughter, Martha expects 
to graduate from Mary Baldwin College 
in January, 1969; Sally enters Guilford 
College this year, and Henry, a seventh 
grader, keeps the house buzzing. 



Busy JANE FRAZIER COKER is teach- 
ing voice at Convetse. During the summer 
she had lunch with HAZEL WATTS 
FLACK ana LUCILLE NEWMAN in Win- 
ston-Salem, taught at the summer session 
at Converse, and visited the Brevard Music 
Camp where her daughter, Carol, was 
studying violin and having her first voice 
lessons. Walter, her son, spent a month 
at Camp Morehead. 

NANCY BEAN PITT writes from 
Roclvy Mount that their two children are 
growing up. Rob, 18, enters Carolina this 
fall and Ann, 15, worked at the city 
swimming pool during the summer. Last 
November Nancy returned to work morn- 
ings at her families' insurance company. 

In August, seven of us had lunch to- 
gether in Charlotte: MOLLY BOSEMAN 
BAILEY, MARY COONS AKERS, MAR- 
GARET BULLOCK KNOX, MARY 
FRANCES McNEELY, FRANCES CRO- 
WELL WATSON, BETTY BLACK 
BYRD and JOSEPHINE McLAUCHLIN 
CRENSHAW. Everyone talked, talked, 
talked — MOLLY'S oldest son, Jim, was 
attending music school in Boston, im- 
proving his combo instrument. BETTY 
has almsot a grown family — a son at 
Eastern Carolina, a senior daughter at 
Meredith, and a son in high school. Betty, 
looking wonderful, left for a visit with 
her parents in Winston-Salem after the 
luncheon. 

MARGARET B. KNOX entertained us 
at a pre-luncheon party in her lovely home. 
Lynn, her 13 year old daughter, is a pretty 
and delightful young girl. Margaret had 
a grand visit with ADELE CHASE SELIG- 
MAN in New York during the summer, 
while there on a 'brace trip' with Lynn. 
Margaret, vivacious as ever, kept us laugh- 
ing. 

MARY FRANCES was just back from a 
convention in Kansas City. Her children 
kept house for themselves — lucky 
"mama." 

MARY COONS AKERS looked as sweet 
and pretty and relaxed as ever. Four chil- 
dren keep her busy with their varied ac- 
tivities. Sarah, 8, was at home this sum- 
mer; Charles, 17, attended summer school 
at McCallie and a wrestling camp at Le- 
high University; Mary Catherine and Mar- 
garet spent a month at Seafarer Camp, then 
the whole family enjoyed a week at Paw- 
ley's Island. 

FRANCES CROWELL WATSON look- 
ed grand. Her attractive husband accom- 
panied her to Charlotte and patiently 
waited for all 'the hens' to visit. Scott 
and Frances have a darling 13 year old 
daughter. 

We extend our sincere sympathy to 
HAZEL WATTS FLACK, whose mother 
died in August. Mrs. Watts returned to 
Salem in May for her 50th class reunion. 
Hazel said that her mother had a grand 
time with the twelve 'girls' of her class. 

HELEN PHILLIPS COTHRAN is a 
busy mother of three lovely children. 
Cindy is in the 9th grade. Chips in the 
8th, and Melissa in the 5th. Helen, Bill 
and the children made a tour of western 
Virginia in August. She plans to resume 
her portrait painting this fall. LILLIAN 
DALTON MILLER and husband. Bob, 
stofiped by to see Helen in Butlington. 
Lillian's son, Bob, is a junior at Duke and 
daughter, Kathy, is a 10th grader in 
Panama City, Fla. 

Tennis and golf tournaments kept B. J. 
JONES HOLMES on the run this summer. 



She's wondering how and why she has 
produced a family of competitive sports 
characters. 

Thank you girls for the news. We'd 
love to hear from ALL of you next time.

We had such a lovely time at Reunion! 
It was wonderful seeing so many of our 
class. Those of you who weren't with us 
u'ere missed, so start planning now to 
make it for the 25th! 

Touring the campus and Old Salem 
was paiticularly enjoyable. Much has 
been added and restored since my last 
visit, and it's all beautiful. 

As your new class correspondent, I beg 
you to send me news of yourselves and 
families. If we're going to continue to 
have the good coverage of our class in 
the Bulletin that PEGGY SUE gave us, you 
all will have to write and keep me in- 
formed! 

There were a few letters this summer, 
for which I'm most gtateful. 

_ HELEN SPRUILL BRINKLEY writes, 
"We are a tennis family. Margaret and 
'Len' have played in several tournaments 
all over the state. This has given Walt and 
me a wonderful chance to meet such 
nice families, and to renew acquaintances 
with MARY FRANCES KING AN- 
DREWS, Betty Holmes and Gussie Garth 
McDonald." 

"Our biggest news is our new German 
daughter, Sigrid Katrina Kuntzoch (AFS 
Student), from Berlin, Germany. She will 
be living with us until next July. Alteady 
she is a part of the family, and we adore 
her. I certainly plan to show her Salem." 

ANNE SOUTHERN HOWELL, Dr. 
Jule and daughters are settled at last in 
their lovely new home on Arbor Road in 
Winston-Salem. 

PAGE DANIEL HILL'S second daugh- 
ter entered college this fall. 

We extend sympathy to MARION

GAITHER CLINE in the loss of her 
mother, April 16, 1968. Her mother was

GENEVRA BEAVER KELLY and Wal- 
tei are building a new home. Genevra 
attended a summer music workshop. She 
and a friend, along with their three chil- 
dren and a baby sitter, rented a house in 
Boone, so they could vacation while they 
worked. 

MARY HARRIET WHITE and MARI- 
LYN WATSON MASSEY have sent new

Jack and I went to the Democratic Na- 
tional Convention in Chicago in August. 
I was a delegate. Contrary to what you 
might suppose from the television cover- 
age, we really had a marvelous time and 
consider it a wondeiful experience! 

Don't forget to send me your news. I'm 
looking forward to lots of cards and letters!

REUNION 



Travel seems to head the list of 're- 
portable' events from our class this time. 
DOTTY COVINGTON McGEHEE and 
family spent a few days in New York be- 
fore leaving on a ten-day cruise in the 
Carribean. She also reports seeing LINA 
LEE HART HUFFINES at Morehead one 
week-end. 

MARY WILLIS TRULUCK'S travels 
with Jeff have taken her recently to Boston 
for two weeks and hopefully to Colorado 
in October. On a recent visit to Burling- 
ton, she had a long visit with ELEANOR 
DAVIDSON LONG. 

BETSY SCHAUM LAMM had a grand 
three weeks at Topsail Beach where KATH- 
ERINE IVES COX joined her and a house- 
ful of 16 year old girls. In addition to 
talking all night every night with Betsy, 
Katherine had an all night session with 
MIRIAM BAILEY NICHOLSON at 
Morehead. 

PATSY MOSER SUMNER and Ted had 
a "heavenly" beach trip while both children 
were in camp. They toured Expo and 
New England last year. This month they 
plan to attend the American Bankers Con- 
vention in Chicago. Patsy reports that 
PEGGY WATKINS WHARTON and 
Dick beat her and Ted in the Labor Day 
Scotch Foursome. As a neighbor, she reports 
TOOTSIE GILLESPIE PETHEL'S Franklin 
is growing a beard! 

News of children ranks next to travel. 
MARY WILLIS TRULUCK'S son is due 
to have his high school graduation coin- 
cide with our 20th year reunion. 

MARY PATIENCE McFALL DIBRELL 
has Fuller, Jr. in football — Patience on 
horseback — and two year old Frances 
into everything. 

Summer camp took PATSY MOSER 
SUMNER'S Tee to Camp Motehead and 
Stacy to Seafarer. Stacy goes to Jr. High 
this year. 

JEAN ADAMS SNYDER reports on 
four children. Neal (18) enters U.N.C.- 
C.H. this fall; Bruce (16) attended the 
Governor's School at Salem this year; 
Mark (12) starts Jr. High this fall; and 



Millie ( 3 ; is the family pet. Jean and I 
have two things in common — husbands 
in the lumber business and houses in the 
country. 

JANE PATON BRADSHER'S son, 
Arch, is a senior at Episcopal High in 
Alexandria, Va., where second son, Don, 
is a sophomore. 

Our condolences go to BETTY WOLFE 
BOYD, JANE CHANDLER McINTYRE, 
and CATHERINE MOORE who have all 
lost their mothers in the last six months. 
We are sorry to hear that MARY WILLIS 
TRULUCK'S mother had a heart attack 
in August, but she expects to be out of the 
hospital very soon. I was particularly dis- 
tressed to learn of the death of PRISSY 
DILLON HENNESSEE'S seventeen year 
old son this year. This sad news came 
from JEANNE DUNCAN GREEAR. 

DERRY McKENNIE BORTNER be- 
came a Yankee when she moved into a 
valley between two mountain ranges in 
State College, Pa. Win is at Penn. State 
University as Associate Professor in the 
College of Human Development. 

Only one career girl reported in, but 
her news was fascinating. KATHERINE 
IVES COX is with the Forsyth County 
Heart Association and is looking forward 
to the upcoming Heart Symposium which 
will have none other than Dr. Denton 
Cooley, Houston heart transplant surgeon, 
as one of its speakers. This month she will 
go to New York to take an orientation 
course by the American Heart Association 
for staff members. 

One of the most exciting news items 
reported came from BETSY SCHAUM 
LAMM, who has Charo Soler-Bavosi from 
Montevideo, Uruguay living with her 
family for the 1968-69 school year. Charo 
is an American Field Service student, and 
is 3 months older than 16 year old Shaum. 
Betsy says she is happy, appealing, affec- 
tionate, and adjusting well having had 
eleven years of English. Betsy is also busy 
with other Salemites in Wilson working 
on their annual Christmas Bazaar which 
has been very successful over the past few 
years. 

MARY PATIENCE McFALL DIBRELL 

has taken time off from ground duty in 
the horse corral to become private school 
organizer in Wilson. 

JOAN HASSLER BROWN has moved 
into Salisbury (a misplaced country girl) 
to a larger if not newer house. Stanley 
and I are due to move into our new home 
this week. We did not need a new home, 
but Stanley did need a new wine cellar; 
so we now have a new wine cellar with a 
new house on top. Our address is the 
same since we just moved one-fourth of 
the way around the lake. We did take time 
out from house-worrying to spend eight 
days in San Diego and San Francisco in 
August. 

Thanks to all of you who responded 
and a wonderful year to all of you.

News has reached the Alumnae Office 
that BETTY GRIFFIN TUGGLE lost her 
husband, Gordon, on October 12. Our 
deepest sympathy to Betty and the children. 



Our deepest sympathy goes to the family 
of E. J. PARRISH who^ died on August 
11, 1968. Those of us who attended classes 
with him remember his cheerfulness and 
his brave determination to become a lawyer 
even though he was totally blind. 

This is that frantic time of the year 
when we mothers don't know what to do 
first — hem the daughters' dresses, cuff 
the sons' pants, work on carpool schedules, 
etc. Since none of us have had much time 
to write, I'm grateful for the news that I 
saved from your generous response last 
Christmas. 

CAROL STORTZ HOWELLS wrote 
that she and Paul have been living in 
■Valley Forge, Pa. for about four years. 
Paul works for the Lutheran Church Synod 
and is in charge of the youth and camping 
for 550 churches! Carol, Paul, Jonathan 
(13), David (11), Rutly (8), and Carol 
Sue ( 7 ) all spend the summer in a camp 
in the Poconos. 

BOBBIE PFAFF QUEEN wrote most 
cheerfully of her three year old daughter, 
Stacie Lee, and her one-year old, Anne 
Bronwyn. Bobbie's husband, Jim, is a 
psychiatric social worker in Jacksonville, 
Fla. 

MUGGINS and George Hutton have a 
fourteen year old son at Sewanee Military 
Academy, Sewanee, Tenn. They have three 
children at home keeping them busy. 

From Arlington, Va. came news of 
MARTHA WOLFE BRADY. Her husband, 
Pete, is a dentist, and their little Petyon 
is six years old. 

LOU DAVIS DEAL and family have 
moved to Atlanta. Lou says she has met 
lots of Salem girls there, but they are all 
so yo!it?g.' The Deals' boys are Mike (12) 
and Davis (9). 

PHYLIS KELLY STRICKLAND is the 
organist at the First Baptist Church in 
Martinsville, Va., and Sttick is a manager 
of two plants for American of Martinsville. 
Their sons, Steve and Tom, are Boy Scouts, 
and Connie is a second grader. 

ANNE EVANS DENNSEN'S daughter 
Larkin (II) is studying piano with Lu 
Long Ogburn Medlin in Smithfield. Anne 
participates in a music club and in a 
church choir, and her husband travels 
quite a bit in connection with the tobacco 
business. 

How good it was to hear from 
SUZANNE SHERMAN ROBINSON after 
so many years! Christine and Doug (15 
and 10) are blonds like David, and Lynn 
(12) is beginning to look like her mother. 
All three children are musically inclined 
and are good students, as well as good 
swimmers. Chris sings in three choirs, and 
Doug plays Little League. David works 
for Firestone Tire and Rubber Co., and 
Suzanne is very active just trying to keep 
up with her busy family, with a little 
P.T.A. work and bridge playing squeezed 
in when possible. 

JEAN CHURCHILL TEAL writes that 
she and her family love living in Lenoir. 
Carol (14) and Richard (12) have attend- 
ed Camp Tanglewood near Winston-Salem 
and had an opportunity to visit Salem. 

SALLY COUNCIL attended an alumnae 
meeting in Fayetteville last year and saw 
MARION ACKER who looked 'grand'. 
The best part of the meeting was the 
speaker. Miss Jess Byrd.

BETSY FARMER GRAVES sends the 
good news that she has a namesake daugh- 
ter who was born on her birthday. Con- 
gratulations! 

We had a most exciting summer with 
our Tuckahoe Little Nationals playing in 
the Little World Series. It wasn't Bobby's 
team, for he is on the Tuskahoe Americans, 
but we knew some of the boys and they 
were still "our boys". Bob is on the board 
of directors and coaches Bobby's team. 
He took our big three up to the game 
in Williamsport that Tuckahoe so sadly 
lost to Japan. We had big celebrations 
when the team returned. There were tro- 
phies given, happy tears shed, and many 
a cry of "Go, Go Tuckahoe." 

Thank you all for writing news. It really 
is good to hear from you and to learn 
that there are others who have teenagers 
already! Please do keep up the writing!

a daughter, Katharina. Erika has given 
up teaching, and she and Rudolf are build- 
ing a home outside the city. "Living in a 
small city apartment is oppressing especial- 
ly for the child". With all the changes, 
Erika says the last year has really been a 
revolutionary one for them.

REUNION 

PHYLLIS FORREST SINCLAIR and 
Jim announce the birth of a third daughter, 
Ann Torrey, on May 3, 1968. The Sinclairs 
live in Raeford. 

Congratulations to Gerald W. Cook 
upon his promotion to commander in the 
Navy. Gerald is the husband of JULIA 
SHIELDS, and they have three children: 
Sandra, 10; Charlotte, 8; and Charles, 2. 

Listed among his assignments were 
tours in S. Vietnam and Japan, and the 
note that he has published two books. 

I hopped on a plane in Chicago last 
May and the first person I saw was 
JOANNE MOODY CLARK. We both 
were headed for a conference in Colorado 
and enjoyed exchanging reminiscences. 

This is a great, large reminder to all 
of you that, unbelieveably, we have been 
alumnae for nearly 15 years! To celebrate 
the occasion, we are having a reunion at 
Salem next spting. Please make a note of 
this on your calendar and plan to join us 
for the festivities. You will be hearing 
more about this.

REUNION 

Honestly, this past year has been such 
a busy one, I don't know where to begin. 



and I probably won't report half the news 
you have sent, or that I've heard. In my 
last newsletter I said my daddy had had a 
heart attack in January. We were back and 
forth to Farmville for several weeks, then 
he died March 11, and was buried in 
Raleigh. Mother is doing well, and staying 
on in Farmville. 

In June we met SARA OUTLAND 
DeLOACHE and family, and ROSANNE 
WORTHINGTON PRUNEAU and fam- 
ily at Morehead, where we got together 
several times. BETTY LYNN -WILSON 
ROBINSON had planned ot join us, but 
was called home when one of Phil's rela- 
tives died unexpectedly. Also had a nice 
visit with two from the class of 1956. 
Emma McCotter Latham and Mary E. Mc- 
Clure Phillips, both of whom live in New 
Bern and were staying at the same place 
we were. Needless to say everyone looked 
great, and much was said about Salem. 

While at the beach we received the 
"delightful news" we were being transfer- 
red as of August 1. So please note my new 
address. We have bought a beautiful home 
just outside Chattanooga. Jim is the Plan- 
ning Superintendent at the Chattanooga 
DuPont Plant. I have had long visits with 
BARBARA WHITE PEACOCK, who lives 
over on the next mountain, and Sara Hob- 
son Stowers '54. Both look just as good 
as they did at Salem, and it was wonderful 
to see familiar faces. Both girls are active 
in Chattanooga's community affairs. 

JACKIE NEILSON BRASHER and 
family left in August for Geneva, Switzer- 
land. Don will be at DuPont's European 
Home Office, and they will be there for a 
couple of years. Their address is 8ch du len 
Aout, 1222 'Vesenaz, Geneva, Switzerland. 
They were so excited about this move. 

Our deepest sympathy to ANN LANG 
BLACKMON whose father died in July. 
Mr. Lang had been sick for several years, 
and Ann was in and out of Kinston quite 
often. 

When we stopped by SARA OUTLAND 
DeLOACHE'S in Burlington on our way 
to Tennessee, she told me of the death of 
HELEN CAROL WATKINS THOMP- 
SON'S youngest son. He was almost three, 
and had been sick since birth. Our deepest 
sympathy to Helen Carol and her family. 

I have changes of address for the fol- 
lowing: DIANTHA CARTER and her 
parents have moved from their former 
home on Creston Road in Raleigh to 2021 
St. Mary's Street, Raleigh. 

NORMA ANSELL HAHN (Mrs. A. W. 
Hahn), 204 Robinhood Road, Pittsburgh, 
Pa. 15215. 

JANE LITTLE GIBSON (Mrs. Robert 
J. Gibson) 505 Highbrook Drive, N.E., 
Atlanta, Ga. 30325. 

MAGGIE BLAKENEY BULLOCK (Mrs. 
Leonard S. Bullock) 3940 Penderbrook 
Drive, Fairfax, -Virginia 22030. 

DIANE KNOTT- DRIVER and family 
have gone to Japan where Bill will be 
stationed for the next year or so. I don't 
have her address, but am sure her mother 
would forward any mail — Mrs. W. A. 
Knott, Kinston, N. C. 

Please remember to give to the Alumnae 
Fund. Salem needs our support. I hope all 
of you read very carefully Dr. Gramley's 
"Some Plain Facts About Salem," on page 
1 of the August, 1968, Bulletin. None of 
us want "Salem to abandon ambitions, 
settle for mediocrity . . ." We are all proud 
to say we are "Salem girls," and we want 
the girls of the future to feel the same 
way; but there is a great need for more 
alumnae support. Let's all try to do better!

REUNION 



There's been only one letter from our 
class since Christmas, but I'm sure all of 
you will be writing soon about your sum- 
mer adventures. Please do write as we all 
want to hear about everyone in our class. 

MARY JO DOUGLAS MORGENSEN 
wrote that she and her family were moving 
to Muncie, Indiana. Her husband, Paul, 
retired from the Marine Corps after 21 
years and is now a Captain flying with 
Commuter Airlines. Mary Jo's children 
are Karen, 9, Christian, 6, and Erik, 4. 
After moving around for 10 years, Mary Jo 
wrote that she would be happy to settle 
permanently in Indiana. 

KATE COBB McGINNIS sent word 
that she and Bernie had gone to the 
Democratic Conventions in Chicago. Bernie 
was a delegate from the 6th District in 
"Virginia. I hope we'll hear more from 
Kate on her trip and impressions. 

There is an address change for JUAN- 
ITA EFIRD. She has moved from New 
York City to 844 B McAlway Road, Char- 
lotte, N. C. 28211. 

My family went west this summer and 
saw beautiful America, as the sign says. 
And America is beautiful, all the way to 
Kansas Ciry, Kansas, where we stopped 
to visit my husband's parents. We drove 
on the superest super highways and watch- 
ed prosperity and bears in the Smokies 
and Wallace stickers (everywhere) go by 
from the window. Our boys loved it all. 
A highlight was a running hike through 
Mammouth Cave in Kentucky which took 
4'/2 hours — (I was running to get out.) 
Now that Hunter is settled in third grade 
and Philip in kindergarten, I'm back to 
the P.T.A. volunteer circuit with an addeci 
adventure of a graduate course at Wake 
Forest University. To avoid a detailed 
description of the course in the t7ext Bulle- 
tin, please send me your news. A Happy 
Fall to all.

REUNION 

Get out the Metracal, ladies — our 
tenth reunion is coming up! June, 1969 

18 



IS the date and it will be here before you 
know it, so start making plans now to 
attend. "We've got a lot ot catching up to 
do! 

No wonder we haven't heard from 
MARTHA GODDARD MITCHELL lately. 
After perusing the foUowmg, you'll under- 
stand just what has been taking up all of 
her time! There are now five Mitchell 
children: John, 6y2; Susan, 4!/?; Eleanor, 
3; Ann, 116; and Jean, 6 months. And here 
are some of the activities which keep 
Martha on the go. She teaches thirty piano 
pupils each week; is Vice-President of the 
Junior Woman's Club of Toccoa; is State 
Chairman of Club Woman Magazine; is 
Chairman of the Library Fund Raising 
Committee which is now tiying to raise 
$120,000 for a new Toccoa- Stephens Coun- 
ty Public Library; and is a member of the 
■Toccoa Garden Club. In her many hours of 
spare time, she plays duplicate bridge! 

Another busy gal is MARILYN SHULL 
BROWN who writes that she is "very 
busy in music." She has added nine piano 
pupils this year. She and David celebrated 
their eighth wedding anniversary this past 
September and spent it painting their bed- 
room, and making room for new furniture. 
The Browns are never lacking for a project! 

Here are some new addresses to make 
note of. JANE IRBY GRANT and family 
are now living in Columbia, South Caro- 
lina at 1830 Inglewood Drive 29206. 
SHAN HELMS MAY lives at 29 East 61st 
Street, Apt. L.B., New York, New York. 
CAMILLE SUTTLE SMITH and Alex have 
moved to the University of Tennessee in 
Knoxville. Their new address is 2209 
Woodson Drive, S.W. 37920. 

SUE COOPER HUFFMAN, who inci- 
dentally is responsible for at least half of 
this column, writes that they had a grand 
visit this summer with MARY JANE 
MAYHEW BURNS, Woody, Little 
Woody, and Oakie, the dog, in Hickory. 
They are still in Chapel Hill — Mary 
Jane is working and Woody is in Med 
School. Sue and George with their two 
little girls, spent part of the summer at 
Sue's parents home in Selma and some 
time in Blowing Rock with George's 
parents. I don't want that to sound like 
George was on vacation all summer — he 
joined them on the weekends! 

Another of the Selma girls, CLARICE 
LONG VINCENT, has a new address, too. 
Charlie was called into the Air Force last 
February so they are now living in Myrtle 
Beach, South Carolina: Captain Charles 
R. Vincent, F 76, Myrtle Beach AFB, 
Myrtle Beach. 

I've had news of only two births this 
time and I believe it must be some kind 
of record! Congratulations go out to 
MARGIE BOREN HUTTON a"nd Freddy 
on the arrival of little Margaret Boren, 
6 lbs., 11 ozs., who was born July 12. 
Margie writes that they are thrilled to 
death and that Freddy is a mighty proud 
papa. 

More congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. 
Mallory Reeves (MARTHA WILKIN- 
SON) on the birth of Martha Melvin, 
August 19, in Houston, Texas. Big sister, 
Alice, was four in January. 

MARTHA DUVAL PRYOR, Ned and 
two children were home (Cheraw, S. C. ) 
from England this summer for six weeks 
before a move to Amsterdam the latter 
part of August. Ned will manage the office 
there of Merrill, Lynch, etc. 

MARCILLE VAN LIERE DEANE and 



Tenney have had an unusually busy sum- 
mer and fall, since Tenney has been work- 
ing as an advance man with Richard 
Nixon's campaign. Other Charlotte folks 
making the news are MARTHA McCLURE 
HATHAWAY and Kent who are now 
the proud parents of a model! Stuart, ten 
months old, has been doing some modeling 
for newspapers and television. Keep up 
the good work, Stuart, and maybe your 
daddy can retire early! 

BETTY and Perry Holcomb have moved 
into a new home; 809 Hmamond Drive, 
North Augusta, S. C. 29841. Martha, al- 
most 4 and Robert, now in the 3rd grade, 
keep her busy — as does taking another 
graduate course. She was honored by being 
listed in the 1967 edition of Outstanding 
Young Women of America. She is looking 
forward to reunion. 

The middle of September NANCY 
WILLIS EVANS spent the day visiting 
ANN SUMMERELL DAVANT in Char- 
lotte. Nancy and her two children are liv- 
ing with her parents in Rock Hill for a 
year while Holt is on assignment with the 
Air Force in Thailand. Ann is kept pretty 
busy running after Allison, Jr., but finds 
time to do a mighty good job of presiding 
over the Charlotte branch of the Salem 
Alumna. She and the other officers of the 
club were hostesses at Ann's home the first 
of September at a Coke Party for the new 
and returning Salem students in the Char- 
lotte area. I was mighty pleased to be there 
and see that Salem is still drawing the 
"cream of the crop!" 

P.S. I hope that the brevity of our column 
this time will prod you all to put 
pen to paper.

Girls, I'm receiving much mail — all 
full of questions about "missing" or 
"silent" alumnae, and I've done very little 
about it. I just don't believe I'm up to 
answering all the inquiries personally, so 
will pass on your questions through the 
class notes. 

BETSEY GUERRANT ARNETT would 
like to hear news of the following girls; 
NANCI NEESE BRAGG, HARRIET 
HERRING, TONI LAMBERTI KUR- 
LAND, ANN LUTTRELL OWEN, DORA 
BRYAN TATE, MERIBETH BUNCH and 
MALLIE BEROTH. Nanci lives in Win- 
ston-Salem, has three boys and a girl, and 
husband Nick is in charge of educational 
programming for Old Salem, Inc. Meribeth 
went to do graduate study at UCLA after 
teaching music at Wilson College, Cham- 
bersburg. Pa. Toni lives and works in 
New York City and loves it. Mallie is at 
the Jim Cherry Elementary School in 
Atlanta teaching reading, English, and writ- 
ing to seventh graders, one third of them 
Negro, in a disadvantaged neighborhood. 
Her address is: 3217 C Buford Highway 
N.E., Atlanta 30329. Harriet is a faculty 
member in the department of music at 
Brevard College. She teaches piano, music 
theory and music appreciation. I have no 
recent news from Lutt or Dora. How about 
it? 

CAROLINE EASLEY ALDAY'S new 
address is: 1780 Wayland Circle N.E., 
Atlanta, Ga. 30319. Buddy will do a three 
year orthopedic surgery residency at Emory. 

BARBARA PAYNE NANNEY wants 
news of EVA JO BUTLER DANIEL. Let 
us hear. 

BELLE HARKRADER FINOCCHIO 



was sorry to miss reunion, but was moving 
from Miami Lakes, Florida to Forest Hills, 
New York where her husband is on the 
quality contral staff of Charles Pfizer, Inc. 
She wants to know about JOAN HILL 
HESTER and JULIA COX DAVIS. Belles 
address is: 66-22 Fleet Street No. 6G, 
Forest Hills, New York 11375. I'll try to 
get news from Joan and Julia for next 
Bulletin. 

CONNIE McINTYRE HAND has mov- 
ed from San Antonio to 1817 Standish 
Drive, Irving, Texas 75060. 

MARY ALICE POWELL ADAMS has 
moved from Charlotte to 405-C Mason 
Farm Road, Chapel Hill, N. C. 27514. She 
and Jerry are pursuing graduate studies — 
Jerry in political science and Mary Alice 
in social work. 

RENIE HAUSER COLEMAN wrote a 
lovely letter from Park Forest, 111., a 
suburb of Chicago, where she and Graham 
have been living for seven years. She says 
she'll never feel at home there and would 
love to come back South someday. Her 
address is: 317 Shawnee Street, Park Forest, 
111. 60466 (Ph. 747-2335). She has three 
children: Christine, 8, in third grade. Clay, 
5, in kindergarten and Stewart, 4, in nur- 
sery school. She enjoys teaching Sunday 
School, and occasionally goes into Chicago 
to shop or see a play. Graham is Western 
Sales Manager for Lynchburg Foundry Co. 

MARIE STIMPSON SALMON'S hus- 
band Jack had major heart surgery in 
Houston in July under the skilled hands 
of the noted Dr. Cooley. All seems to be 
well, and we are all so grateful. 

SANDI SHAVER PRATHER wrote me 
for some Moravian music, and added a few 
details of her summer: "I did get to renew 
an old friendship with my best friend from 
Turkey, a husband and three children later 
for both of us. They live in Dearborn, 
Michigan, and the reunion was such a 
success, we plan to repeat it in the fall 
sometime at their house." She also visited 
a great aunt in Missouri who is 86 years 
old and lives alone. Sandi says, "Instead 
of getting less involved in activities, I have 
gotten 7nore involved." Knowing Sandi, 
I'm sure that's the case. 

And we Salzwedels still live in the brick 
house next to the Home Church, just 
north of the square. If you come to visit 
Salem, please drop in and say howdy.

First, may I thank MARY BOOE for 
such a grand job of writing the reunion 
news in my stead. It was grand to hear 
from so many of the gals. Velva, your 
picture in the reunion "group" was indeed 
a delightful surprise. 

With so little time spanning the re- 
union report and this writing, there is not 
a great deal of news. As always, there is a 
"production schedule" to spotlight these 
lines! LOU LILES KNIGHT and John 
now boast of another son, David, who was 
born the latter part of June. JANE 
GIVENS JORDAN and Bill also announce 
the birth of son, Joseph Givens Jordan 
(Joey), August 30. Congratulations to 
these happy parents. 

I had a grand conversation with SALLY 
WOOD CREECH not too long ago, at 
which time she made the glorious an- 
nouncement to me that she and Bill will 
be applying for diaper service and baby 
sitters in December (maybe even a New 
Year's Day baby! ) How 'bout it Pal Sal!

At this writing CYNTHIA HYATT 
KRATT and Ted are a week or two away 
from being proud parents for the second 
go 'round. News from Lumberton is that 
SUSAN HUGHES PLEASANT and Ronnie 
are going to be even more pleasant come 
next March and the arrival of their first 
child. Writes Susan, "Ronnie declares it 
will be twins because they run in both 
sides of his family." The Pleasants had 
quite a busy summer and Susan has now 
settled into teaching again — at least 
until Christmas or the end of first semes- 
ter. Susan also wrote, "Mary Ann and I 
haven't gotten together yet because of my 
travel restrictions and her new hobby — 
show horses." Tell us more about this 
hobby, Mary Ann.

First of all, my thanks to those who 
wrote the news for the Reunion Issue. I 
was unable to go at the last minute due 
to unforeseen complications. I'm glad ev- 
eryone had such a good time. The picture 
was terrific — no one seems to have changed 
a lot — very well preserved for five years! 

Here is all the news I have. I guess you 
have all been having a busy summer as I 
have heard from so few. 

Congratulations to some parents : 
JACKIE BAKER MORTON and Duncan, 
a second son in June — sorry, no name. 
Jackie; Where are you? 

NANCY KIZER CRUTCHFIELD and 
Eddie, a son, Edward E. Ill, born in Aug- 
ust. 

ANN McARVER STOWE and Roger, 
adopted daughter Barbara Ann. She was 
three months old in June. 

Also, congratulations on the following 
marriages :EVELYN BROWN to Charles 



G. Metcalfe, Jr. in June. They live at 200 
E. Charles Street, Avon Park, Fla. 33825. 
Chuck is in the hardware business and 
raises cattle on the side. Evelyn is teaching 
music at The Highland School and really 
enjoying it. 

SHEENA WARREN WOODS to Rich- 
ard N. Hodgin in July. They are living in 
Greensboro at 5523 Wayne Road. 

Below are some address changes: GIN- 
GER WARD COHEN and Harold have 
given up Manhattan for the suburbs — 688 
Telden Avenue, Teaneck, N. J. 07661. 
They are expecting their first baby in De- 
cember. Ginger said she's seen CAROLE 
MEADOWS McCRONE and her husband 
when they left for Spain. She also men- 
tioned that ELISE VITALE is running for 
the city council in Wilmington, Delaware, 
the first of us to seek office. Good luck 
to you, Elise. 

MARTHA ANN MARTIN COOPER, 
Tom and Lindy (who is now in first 
grade) have moved to Greenville, S. C, 
127 Colvin Road, 29607. Tom is a Pro- 
duction Engineer for W. R. Grace and Co. 

JANE KELLY CRAVER, Penn and 
Brian have moved to Winston-Salem, 2 ID 
College Village Apts. Penn has finished 
his tour with the Army and is joining a 
law firm in Winston. Brian is now over a 
year old. 

While we were on vacation in May I 
was able to see several classmates — among 
them JANE RAYNOR VICKERS, DEAN 
MAJOR CLIFFORD, HEATHER PEEB- 
LES DeVRIES, BETTY BLACK ANDER- 
SON and GAY AUSTIN CASH. Everyone 
looked so good, and I enjoyed the visits. 
Heather, Gay, Betty and I had lunch to- 
gether while Mrs. Peebles kept the babies. 
Hunter DeVries, born March 12, 1968, is 
really a curie. Gay and 1 enjoyed compar- 
ing notes, as Sandy and Frank are only 
three days apart. Betty's boys are loads of 
fun and both have mom's red hair! 

We are moving next door, so be sure 
to note the change of apartment No. 8B. 
It will be pure luxury to have two bed- 
rooms! Frank III is really getting around 
now and can find trouble so quickly. 

I am taking a course in History toward 
an M.A. and am very excited about it. 
Please don't forget to put me on your 
Christmas list. I really enjoy all of your 
cards and news! I just wish I could an- 
swer them.

Well, someone's finally done it. We now 
have a mother of twins. CACKY HUB- 
BARD NEWITT and John are the proud 
parents of our first pair of twins, if I'm 



not mistaken. Catherine Stratford and Eliza- 
best Blake arrived May 11, 1968. Cacky 
says she and Mole never get any sleep 
because Stratford and Blake have refused 
to synchronize their schedules. But Cacky 
and Mole love being parents, even if they 
do have double duty.

having Jarmon Andrews, Jr. (Drew), who 
arrived two weeks early. Janie, if you 
remember, left Salem to marry Jarman Jen- 
kins in March, 1965. He graduated from 
Wake Forest in 1963 and joined the Navy 
in 1964. Janie followed him on his Medi- 
terranean cruise and flew to Hawaii for 
his "R & R" in October. While he was

home this year doing pastel portraits for 
friends, etc., mostly of children and dogs. 
I have been studying art with Bob Bruns, 
who is quite well known around here for 
portraits, and really have learned a lot. 
I haven't been doing much ballet, but I 
plan to start training Ashley as soon as she 
can walk! (Ha)." Lynne's address is: Mrs.

ers. After spending the spring in Monterey, 
California, where Terry completed college 
(he's already served in the Navy), they 
spent the summer "raking in the dough 
working in a gambling casino. Terry is' a 
craps dealer and has been doing this for 
summer jobs. He's great. We're on lovely 
Lake Tahoe in the high Sierras and work- 
ing in one of the nicer and smaller casinos. 
I am a cashier at the main desk, making 
payoffs and cashing checks, etc. We're 
having a grand time. For fun we hit the

quite a reunion with four of the class of

SANDRA MORGAN PERRY, and JEAN 
SNYDER were as pretty as ever walking

Dear Class of '68, 

I'm sure by now that everyone is settled 
and busy taking care of husbands, careers, 
or maybe both. You've probably not given 
much thought to past projects, but it is 
time to think again. While everyone was 
tying up loose ends, such as comps, exams, 
and graduation, yours truly left one loose 
end completely dangling. I'm now trying 
to get this one tied. 

As many of you will remember, in a 
class meeting last spring, I mentioned con- 
tonuing the project of each members giving 
money to the library in order to buy a 
book for their major department. I pro- 
mised to bring this up later toward the 
end of the year, but as you will remember, 
I forgot. 

However, it is not too late to clear this 
matter up. The library needs books, and 
this is your big chance — notice particu- 
larly the choice of words. Now that most 
of us are working and no longer living 
on a "student budget", I'm sure everyone 
will want to make a generous contribution 
to help improve the reference material 
for her department. 

I'll expect to hear glowing reports of 
your generous contributions soon! 
Sincerely, 
Martha Eubanks 

Weddings seem to be the vogue for 
68'ers, and I hit quite a few of these 
events myself this summer! SUSAN 
BARNES and Edlow Barker were married 
June 15 in Winston-Salem. They are now 
both teaching in Norfolk, and living at 
5815 Frament Avenue, Apt. 102, Norfolk.

ployed by Wachovia and Billy is in grad 
school at Bowman Gray.

was Edie's maid of honor, is teaching Latin 
and Literature at the Arendall Parrott 
Academy here in Kinston. Her address is 
600 Perry Street, Kinston, 28501. 

One wedding that no one should have 
missed was PATSY MATHEWS'. She and 
Ozzie Reynolds were married in Kingsport, 
Tenn. on June 29, and what a dav! That 
was some ceremony, with CECILIA 
MOORE, MARTHA EUBANKS, and 
SUSAN and Kathy Mathews gracing the 
church! Patsy and Ozzie are now in Chapel 
Hill, 1 Flemington Road. Ozzie is a second 
year med student at Carolina and Patsy is 
teaching in Durham. 

SUZAN MATHEWS is teaching in 
Charlotte, and when I last heard, she and 
GAIL SMITH were sharing an apartment. 
Gail is teachin.g in Belmont. 

More weddings in the news — CARO- 
LYN RICH HINES and Eddie were mar- 
ried June 22 and are living at 203 W. 
Newlyn St., Greensboro. Carolyn is teach- 
ing in Greensboro this year. Eddie is with 
Pilot Life Insurance Co. 

LEIGH JOHNSON and Tom Cameron 
also were married in June — the 21st. 
They are both students at N. C. State in 
Raleieh. BILLIE BUSBY WEBB wrote me 
that she and CARRIE KIRKMAN FREE- 
MAN were in the wedding, and that 
DELPHINE BOYER was also there. BiUie. 
her husband Jody, and daughter lulie will 
be in Denver this year. Jody hopes to 
start grad school later this year. 

Another weddina that no one sho'dd 
have missed was SISTER TEMPLE's. She 
and Tohn Civils were married Aue"st 3

maid! Sister made an outline and fomd 
that with careful planning, she wo''ld have 
time to teach third grade here in Kinston. 
John is emoloi'ed by Wachovia. Their new 
address is 810'/2 N. Queen St.. Kinston. 

LISA MABLEY wrote that her summer 
has been very dull, except for attending 
MARY JO HAWK'S and INGRID 
KVAM's weddings. Ingrid and Skip Haskell 
were married June 29, and will be in 
Winston-Salem this year. Ingrid will be 
back at Salem earning a teacher's certificate. 
I think Mary Jo and Bob Shaw will be in 
Raleigh. Lisa will be in Winston-Salem, 
working with the YWCA. Her address is 
Apt. 2, Snow's Apt., 5003 Bethania Road, 
Winston-Salem, 27106. 

I spent several days with CONNIE 
SORENSEN not too long ago, and what 
a time was had by all! MARY ALICE 
DeLUCA whipped over from Burlington 
in her teal-blue Camaro with the concealed 
headlights and we really did the town. 
Connie works in the research lab at Bow- 
man Gray, and I think that the lab is 
ready to do a little research on Connie! 
Her address is 301 Sunset Drive, Winston- 
Salem. Mary Alice is still at 624 W. Davis 
Street, Burlington, unless she has been 
evicted for nefarious activities. She works 
for Western Electric. Connie, M.A., and I 
all plan to journey to Virginia Beach 
Sept. 13 for a weekend with SUSAN 
JONES and MARY HOBSON FARR. 



Susan and Hob are both teaching in Va. 
Beach, although Hob's school has not been 
completed, so she is in temporary quarters 
until January. The Class of '68 will be 
overjoyed to know that Susan bought a 
new car this summer. Yes, she traded 
"Plym" for "Plym, Jr.". "Plym, Jr." has an 
air-conditioner which is quite a step up 
when you consider that "Plym" didn't 
even have a heater! Oh, by the way, Suz 
and Hob live at 6306 Atlantic Ave., so if 
you're up that way, watch out — Susan 
may be singing! 

I have seen LINDA HOLLAND 
PO'WELL and Gene several times recently.

bought a house there at 2507 Eaton Rd., 
28295. Linda is teaching seventh and 
eighth grade math, and Gene is in school.

this year. NANCY WHARTON is in the 
School of Medical Technology at Medical 
College of 'Virginia. Her address is 716 
Cabiness Hall, M. C. V., Richmond 23219. 

DONNA VAN DYCK MOSELEY, who 
certainly never won any medals for pen- 
manship, wrote (when I finally decipher- 
ed it) that she and Danny have moved 
back to Richmond where Danny is employ- 
ed by Phillip Morris in a management 
training program. Donna got a "marvelous 
job with a beautiful salary" as a mathe- 
matician with Life of 'Virginia Insurance. 
However, she hated it, so now is a prospec- 
tive social worker. Donna??? She seems 
pleased to have LIZ DOUGLAS LOWRY

BARRY THRIFT BROWN writes that

ville, 'Va., where Clark is in school. Barry

KAMP and John also spent several days 
with her. Pifer and John were married

Netherlands where John is in med school. 
Pif, sounds to me as though you will have 
plenty of company! SALLIE KING HOL- 
LIS, BETSY DuBOSE, and JEAN SAW- 
YER MEIXSELL all write that they hope 
to visit you soon! 

Sallie writes from Kaiserslautern, Ger- 
many where she and Chuck have lived 
since November, 1967. Sallie has had a 
wonderful chance to use the German she 
learned at Salem, as she and Chuck have 
toured Germany extensively, and hope to 
see more of Europe before leaving. Sallie 
keeps busy being a housewife and caring 
for their toy poodle. She invites any and 
all Salemites to come to Kaiserslautern.

her way to France, where for nine exciting 
months she will study at the University of 
Lyon as a Fulbright Scholar. Congratula- 
tions, Betsy! 

NANCY JOHNSON has spent a rather 
hectic summer in Europe. (But then it 
wouldn't be Nancy Johnson if it wereti't 
hectic! ) A fellow guest killed himself in 
the hotel lobby in Rome, and in London 
a man was shot at the corner of the hotel! 
So Nancy was recuperating in Scotland 
when I last heard. She probably bought 
lots of yarn for those sweaters she's always 
knitting! 

ROBIN SANDS QUERRY and Ken

in Charlottesville where Ken is a UVa 
med student. Robin is teaching French

JULIE JOHNSON. She is a claim examiner 
for a health insurance company. Julie has 
heard from KATHIE CARPENTER who 
is in Boston, Mass. looking for a job. 

COURTNEY GIBB is another one 
whose handwriting leaves something to be 
desired, but I think she is in Florida. She 
doesn't say where. Sarasota, maybe? Last 
year she attended Ringling School of Art, 
and advises all interested in art to give 
it a whirl. She has heard from CHERI 
ROSE MARTIN (Mrs. Lewis, III) who 
is now living in Apt. C-4, West End 
Manor, Fairmont Dr., Nashville, Tenn. 

I talked to ANNE DURHAM last night 
and she seems to be enjoying teaching. 
Having graduated from Centre College in 
June, she is now living in Louisville, teach- 
ing high school Latin and Art. I forgot 
to ask if she ever hears from FRANCES 
McNINCH. I think Frances is going to

Nancy Johnson ou«ht to get together.

but she's teaching physical science at Mar- 
tin Junior High in Raleigh. She welcomes

cliffe Road, Apt. A.

I received an hilarious letter from 
SARAH LYNNE COBB who is working 
for the Neifs and Observer in Raleigh. 
She wiites, "I plan to win the Pulitzer 
Prize any day. Actually, I'm writing society 
news. The job sounds marvelous (to those 
who don't have it) — good hours, flex- 
ability, low pay!" Seems to me, from her 
address, that she and EDIE BRIDGERS 
STOKES are in the same complex. Sarah's 
address is 2300 Avent Ferry Road, Apt. 
Q-7, Raleigh 27606. 

CAROL FREEMAN, bless her heart, 
is working in Greensboro, teaching school 
of all things. But since she has not taken 
time nor trouble to pen me any news, 
she must be dismissed with a mere men- 
tion. 

ANNE WILLIS RICHARDSON and 
Jim are living in Glen Lennox, Chapel 
Hill, with daughter Suzanne. Jim is in 
Law School at UNC. Nancy Sale Howell 
and Ted also live in Glen Lennox. 

BETH FRANKLIN BRYAN and Rich- 
ard live on Forest Hills Dr. in Wilming- 
ton, N. C. Beth is teaching Government 
and History or some such thing, after hav- 
ing graduated from Wilmington College 
in June. Their daughter Holly is a living 
doli! 

I was severely reprimanded for not 
mentioning BUMPY McIVER in my letter 
to the Class, so I shall now devote a few 
lines to my esteemed roomie and colleague 
in crime. Bumpy is teaching piano (pri- 
vately) in Sanford, and also hopes to be- 
come organist at the Episcopal Church. I 
say get het into the church one way or the 
other!! Bumpy can be found in Box 610, 
Sanford, N. C. 

Apparently, Denver is the place to be as 
we have sevetal Salemites out there. Be- 
sides BILLIE BUSBY WEBB, MARY 
WELCH will live in Denver after her 
October 5 marriage to Jim Austin who is 
employed as an exploration engineer with 
Shell Oil Co. 

I also heard from our other Denverites 
in what has to be the funniest letter I 
have received in a long time. FRANCES 
TONES. MARILYN LOWRY, and 
MARTHA EUBANKS are sharing an 
apartment at 1152 York St., Act. 6, 80^06. 
and were lucky enough to have CHRIS 
CONNER as a live-in maid for several 
days before Chris returned to Charlotte 
to work with Young Life. Martha and 
Frances both are working for the First 
National Bank of Denver, Martha as a 
special services coordinator and Frances 
in the Trust Department ( Investment Di- 
vision), while Marilyn is teaching. These 
girls have really been busy, as their chief 
project has been to raise money to string 
lights along the top of the Rockies so that 
we can see them at night. And what better 
way to raise money than to sponsor the 
New Christy Minstrels!! Sell those tickets, 
girls. Are they still S2,500 a night?! These 
girls seem to love Denver, except that "we 
go to Salem" doesn't cash a check quite 
as easily out there as here. Thev have en- 
joyed fixing their apartment, which is done 
in early Clewell basement, and welcome all 
to their humble abode which they have 
dubbed, appropriately enough, "Clewell". 

I must say, people really crawled out 
of the woodwork to answer my plea for 
news. So keep it up. I am in Chapel Hill

SALEM COLLEGE BULLETIN 



Our Thanks to Betsy Hill Wilson 

Betsy Hill Wilson, '41, in her year and half as Director 
of Alumnae Affairs, made a place for herself among the 
alumnae. Through her modest and gracious manner, she 
was able to establish an immediate bond with the alumnae, 
from the youngest to the oldest. 

Betsy brought to the position assets other than the 
abihty to make friends. Her years as a student in the 
Academy and the College gave her comprehensive knowl- 
edge of Salem, and she was deeply devoted to the aims 
and purposes of the college. 

During her tenure as Director, the activities of clubs 
were expanded, new types of group meetings in North 
Carolina were initiated, and plans were completed for a 
self-study of the College by the Alumnae of '62-'68. She 
was particularly enthusiastic about the new method for 
Alumnae Fund gifts, for which she helped make the plans 
last summer. 

The Alumnae Board expresses for the Association deep 
appreciation to Betsy for her services and regret that 
family responsibilities necessitated her resignation in 
December.

CAMPAIGN TO SALEM'S FAR-FLUNG FAMILY 



A revitalized, fully organized, well synchronized Alum- 
nae Fund appeal is in progress this year. Its goal is to more 
than double, hopefully to triple, the usual number of 
participants and to have the Fund's saucer as well as its 
cup run over on behalf of Salem. 




Peggy Witherington Hester 

The Fund committee, headed by Peggy Witherington 
Hester, '46, of High Point, is centering its efforts at present 
in a two-pronged approach: (1) a Special Gifts division 
headed by Mary Louise Haywood Davis, '37, and (2) a 
Class Agents division among the fifty classes from 1919- 
1969 being recruited and organized by Mrs. Hester herself, 
with help from Mary Louise McClung Edwards, '38, 
president of the Alumnae Association, and by members of 
the Fund Committee. 

A campaign by mail among the classes before 1919 
will be conducted later in the spring. The chairman 
for this group is Louise Horton Barber, '11, president of 
the Alumnae Association from 1949-51. 

The Special Gifts appeal has been under way since 
November and has been highly successful to date. Approxi- 



mately 100 alumnae have responded generously to personal 
letters from Mary Louise Haywood Davis. 

The Class Agents division has been in process of re- 
cruitment since late November and has enlisted a Class 
Chairman for each class and more than 500 Class Agents. 
Each agent will write personal letters to not more than ten 
classmates. The number of agents in each class depends 
solely upon how many are required to "cover" all class- 
mates without assigning more than 10 to each agent. This 
plan serves to spread the work without undue burden to 
any one person, and it has made recruitment of agents 
reasonably easy. 




Mary Louise Haywood Davis 

Office work, of which there seems to be no end, is 

being handled by Jess Byrd, '27, retired head of the English 

Department who is interim Director of Alumnae Affairs, 

and the very efficient Delores Clarke, who has been clerical 

and secretarial assistant in the Alumnae Office for several 

years. 

1 



Miss Byrd, who always did know the difference between 
a Shakespeare play and class notes in the Alumnae Bulletin, 
is proving that she knows the difference also between a 
comma splice and a postage stamp or an addressograph 
plate. Her knowledge of who's-who-and-where and her 
friendship with so many Winston-Salem alumnae have 
made it possible for her to get much volunteer help. 

In this troublesome, inflationary period of time, the 
Alumnae Fund Committee is hopeful of attracting wide 
interest among graduates and former students in supporting 
the College. The greater the percentage of alumnae who 
respond, regardless of amount, the greater is the institu- 
tion's chances of securing grants from foundations and 
industries. 

For a number of years, less than 20% of Salem's 
alumnae have responded to the annual fund appeal. The 
alumnae of comparable women's colleges have done much 
better than this. 

Support is needed not only to continue the programs 
the Alumnae Association is now sponsoring (Rondthaler 



lectureships, President's prizes, art exhibits, Katherine B. 
Rondthaler creative awards, Salem Room in the Library, 
etc.), but to support aspects of the Association's activities 
and to help the College's operating budget. 

The College has always paid the salary of the Director 
of Alumnae Affairs and the clerical assistant. It has also 
provided a budget for the Alumnae Office for postage, 
supplies, equipment, and a major portion of the cost of the 
Alumnae Bulletin. Successive presidents of the Alumnae 
Association and others have long wished that alumnae 
support would eventually rise to the point that it would 
cover at least this expense and thus relieve the institutional 
budget. 

It is true, of course, that alumnae have contributed gen- 
erously to scholarship endowment, the 20th Decade Fund 
and other special causes. This should continue. But it is 
hoped that the Alumnae Fund itself might carry more of 
its share of basic operating costs and help support the 
college budget additionally.

THE TWO 
FACES OF 
MARCH 





A NEW EXPLORATION OF THE ARTS 



(The Reverend William Glenesk, pastor of Spencer 
Memorial Presbyterian Church in New York's Brooklyn 
Heights, is striving to "bring creation into the church" 
and to relate religion to modern life. He spoke at Salem on 
Wednesday, January 15. Following are excerpts from his 
informally delivered lecture — exploring ideas with the 
minister who has been an actor, dancer and artist.) 



COKE OR WINE 
An American painter once observed that there is as 
much culture in a bottle of coke as there is in a bottle of 
wine. He was simply saying that we had moved out of the 
time of Cezanne — that still life, for us, is perhaps a 
bottle of coca-cola or a box of Brillo or a Campbell soup 
can or American Flags or the famous goat head coming 
through a tire or a silk screen combine by Robert Rauschen- 
berg in a pop art picture. We don't hear the phrase pop art 
so much this last season. Phrases go in and out. Certain 
symbolisms in language go in and out in periods and 
seasons. 

THE PRESS 

The press is a very interesting phenomenon, one of the 
pop arts of our time. Something pops in and makes news 
and then pops out. If the press is not down there to cover 
it and to project it on the screen, we forget those people 
are still alive and still painting and sculpting and pop-arting 
— that a multiplicity of experiments are going on even 
when they are not exposed to the mass media. 

ART IN LIFE 
There is a break-down of the barriers between art and 
life. There appears to be a sense of sanctity in our time 
of the product or the object in life. The big thing is not 
primarily portraits. Now it is the thing that is the thing. 
Now the accent is on form — the juxtaposition of alien 
materials or subject matter with the resultant clash of taste 
and the formation of new feeling. There is a change in what 
Marshall McLuhan calls the ratio of sense perception. The 
content is the form. Our technological age is becoming 
part of our stream of consciousness. These are the images 
of our time, just as peasant life and wedding feasts were 
part of the stream of consciousness of the time of Peter 
Breughel. 

SIMULTANEOUS 
The elimination of compartments in our culture pro- 
duced antagonism between the avant garde, or the radical 
artist who is trying to revolutionize, and the status quo, 
or the established order. It can no longer be kept in a 
school of art or confined to a corner. Definition is difficult 
in any age, but particularly when so many conventions 
4 



exist concurrently with different ways of painting, differ- 
ent styles of sculpting and of structure and of dramatizing. 
Andrew Wyeth goes on at the same time as pop art, Pablo 
Picasso passes on into another period, Chagall tells another 
fairy tale, and Henry Moore molds another mass of modern 
Stonehenge. No single star (etc.) predominates. Picasso 
has said that art is a lie which tells the truth, and I think 
it is important in our time to realize that art is beginning 
to work out its illusions in terms of stating truth which 
will change the world around us. 

ADVERTISING 
One of the changes in exploring the arts is in avail- 
ability of art in the guise of the disguise of the advertise- 
ment. In any issue of Look or Life or Playboy or Esquire 
or Presbyterian Life are various worlds of dreams to a 
certain degree. Often the advertisements run on into the 
articles and you can not tell the difference. So the magazine 
must print a small type 'advertisement.' Some of the ads 
have become works of art. The designers are commissioned 
with fees comparable to the great painters. It is an 
interesting phenomenon. These magazine have become 
portable art galleries. You can step on any hour's flight, 
take a copy of Look or Life and you are sitting in an art 
gallery with no one moving and talking in front of you. 

THE ARTIST 

The point of being an artist is — whether amateur or 
professional or commercial — that there is a sense in which 
the artist is acutely alive — alive to what is happening 
below the surface and breaking through. Paul Tillich, one 
of the great cultural philosophers of our day besides being 
a theologian, said that it is the awareness of the deceptive 
character of the surface of everything that we encounter 
which drives us to discover what is below the surface. This 
is the excitement, the mystery, the enigma. The man who 
is no longer curious and interested and driven, who no 
longer is an enthusiast and who is not possessed to drive 
below the surface is really dead. The new art is experi- 
mental, an adventure into penetrating the illusions and the 
idolatries of the age. It may set up idols as well, and it 
will be misunderstood, but it will satisfy to some degree 
the need to know what the world is, what man is, and 
what it is to be. 

SUB-SURFACE 
Once an artist breaks through the surface, new de- 
ceptions appear and the digging must go on.. Often we fall 
back on some recent finding because it's comfortable. 
Or it works. It's profitable. Very few painters escape being 
molded by what they make. One of the few is Pablo 
Picasso. When he finished a style, he moved on whatever 



it cost. And he has continued to move throughout the 
cycles of his life. But most painters you can identify 
because all of their paintings are in a particular style, and 
so they have fallen back on a cliche which worked for 
them and was successful. No matter how marvellous and 
beautiful and great, nevertheless, they did fall back. But 
the ultimate artist, and this may not be someone who 
paints, but any one in the art of life, is one who con- 
stantly reaches for what is real and refuses to fall back. 
As Martha Graham said of the dancer, they are like the 
performer on the high tight rope of circumstance who 
refuses — who will not fall. There is no discrepancy here 
between appearances and reality. This is what Tillich calls, 
to some degree, the search for the ultimate beyond. 

STYLE AND FUNCTION 
Style in art can go in many directions. It's a very 
mixed bag of goods. But there is a merging going on here 
in the worlds of art and of experience. Art is not separate 
from the actualities of life. There is fusion and there is 
confusion, but there is a fusion of art going on with the 
ordinary, and the ordinary is being upgraded. No longer 
does art have only to do with the special and the beautiful. 
Art can be something very tough — a junkyard, a tire, a 
street strewn with garbage. The film-maker and the artist 
can take something which is distasteful and difficult and 
throw it at us. We have to see it and we will even want 
to see it because he makes it palatable. Always the problem 
has been of trying to confront people with things which 
they don't want to see but which they know are true 
and which they know are there. Art tends to take them 
and to spread them across cinemascope screens — like 
"Elvira Madigan", showing two people and what happens 
to drop-outs, right down to the bitter end when they took 
the rifle and their bread and wine into the field and the 
film ended. But it ended in magnificent color — through 
a soft grey lens to Mozart's 21 Piano Concerto. That 
made it possible to take. Otherwise we could not see two 
beautiful people go down in an hour and a half. You 
see it is possible to take something ugly and horrible and 
to beautify it. We have a parable. It's not that simple, 
but that is something of what happens and is one of the 
functions of art. 

SEPARATION 
Millions of people in the United States don't realize 
that religion also is an art, and that it is a self-deception, 
an illusion, to go around thinking that they are not an 
incarnation — which means that they are in the flesh. They 
are not walking around as disembodied spirits. This is an 
important realization which has not quite arrived yet in 
most American Christianity. In our time, called the Age 
of Anxiety from the Greek word which means the separa- 
tion of the elements, what is real is being extracted from 
unexpected areas. The cross, the Gothic arch, the presence 
of a Bible do not necessarily state the presence of God. 
The symbolism of our age is shaking up at its foundations. 



and man is beginning to shape his own life. He is begin- 
ning to question his institutions and to ask whether they 
are serving him or he them. Whether automation is going 
to automate him, or whether it is going to release him so 
that he might be free to create and to take part with God 
in a creation that is on-going. 

SHAPE 
The process of the artist now begins to show a pene- 
trating of the veneers, a milking of sacred cows, an expos- 
ing of the concealed. The artist is out on the front line of 
life. He's out there to protest. The philosopher Chardin 
wrote of the material world as the divine milieu. There is 
a sense in art of the mysterious, the presence of what you 
might call a religious dimension — not religion in the 
sense of a dogma or ritual act or something very settled, 
but religion in the sense of the mystic, of looking for 
meaning in contemplation — letting that contemplation 
take a shape, whether it be in the movement of the dance, 
or in the words of a play, or non-words (maybe it's non- 
verbal) or in music, whether it be electronic or jazz or 
the symphony. When you look in our day for what seems 
to be the implicit sacred elements in Bergman's "Wild 
Strawberries" or Durrenmatt's "The Visit" or Brecht's 
"Mother Courage" — • or you look at Breughel's Old 
Harvesters or Carnival in Lent — you find these often 
much closer to life than some great biblical extravaganza 
on the Ten Commandments. 

BARRIERS 
In a sense art is beginning to break down the barriers 
in our corporate and commercial and industrial and mass 
media life. It is also breaking into rehgion which is still 
the most segregated place. I am not talking race. It is still 
the most segregated place where everything is so spiritual 
that it really has too little to do too much of the time with 
what life really means and what God is. It is more talking 
about God than actually getting into contact with Him. 

MAN? 
Nicholai in his great world of electronic music and 
way-out dance of almost inhuman figures said, "The object 
of my work is to put man back where he belongs — in the 
universe." And Martha Graham spoke and wrote of "the 
uniqueness of every man. You are unique," she said," 
and if you do not reveal the image of God in you, that 
which is in you and not in anybody else which is special 
to you will not be revealed and will die and will not come 
into being in the world." 

RESPONSIBILITY 
That is an awesome responsibility. Everybody is expect- 
ed to be an artist, and God is an artist, and we are called 
to be performers in the world. Shakespeare said this in 
many ways. "All the world's a stage . . ." But most of us 
really never get past the first act before the curtain comes 
down. We are called to compose our lives.

In Tribute 




Russell Edward Crews, our beloved chef, who was 
in his fiftieth year of service at Salem, died on February 
23. He had suffered a stroke on January 22 and had been 
in the hospital for one month. He had worked at Salem 
as usual on the day he became incapacitated. 

A memorial service was held in assembly on Friday, 
February 28, and administrative officials, faculty mem- 
bers, students and the entire Refectory staff attended 
Russell's funeral services later that day. 

Honoring Russell Crews at the memorial service on 
campus, President Gramley said, "Russell was a vital force 
in the non-academic life of this campus. He was a friend 
to students as well as to co-workers. He was a devoted 
master of his trade. His greatest pleasure was to serve and 
to make others happy. 

"Russell was sensitive to the reactions of those about 
him, thoughtful always in his relationships, loyal to the 
institution, proud of the students. 'They are the finest in 
the world,' he often said. 

"He remarked on many occasions that he had worn 
out two kitchens at Salem and had outlived one president 
and one acting president. He added that he hoped to stay 
on and finish up with his third president. 

"Although he was urged to take it easy these last few 
years, it was impossible to slow him up. His sense of re- 
sponsibility and his devotion to the work and the people 
he loved preached a sermon whose message will linger on. 

"Something of his philosophy of life is expressed in a 
message he sent Mrs. Cummings just before returning to 
school in September, On the back of a photograph of 
himself which shows him standing at the railing at Niagara 
6 



Falls, with the turmoil of water in the background a 
striking contrast to the pleasant and peaceful expression 
on his face, he penned these words from an unnamed poet: 

Life is a mirror of kings and slaves 

It's just what you are and do; 
So give to the world the best that you have, 

And the best will come back to you. 

"I suspect that on the day he leaves our midst physically 
forever, Russell would be pleased to know that a tree is 
being planted by the Seniors as a symbol of continuing 
life at Salem." 

Of the many who paid tribute to Russell Crews here 
are a few: 

"A warm wide grin ... a white chef's hat balanced 
precariously atop his head ... a friendly hello from the 
kitchen porch . . . 'What's for dinner, Russell.?' . . . shrimp 
and petit-fours and eclairs at Russell's 'surprise' kitchen 
party he gave during exams . . . picnic suppers catered 
to be munched cross-legged on the refectory lawn . . 
special Sunday dinners served with master care ... a 
concern for those who had to eat early or late ... the 
Christmas banquet ... a poem and a bright gold star to 
commemorate his 50 years of devoted service, keeping us 
well-fed and happy . . . We loved him . . . We will miss 
him," from Nancy Richardson, president of Student 
Government. 

From Mary Stockton Cummings, '33, the Dietitian, "I 
thought of Russell not as an employee but as a partner, 
a member of the family, and a wonderful associate in the 
work in the Foods Department. 

"I have known Russell since he first came to Salem 
in 1919 when I was seven years old and living three houses 
up Church Street. I knew him later as my sister Blanche's 
reliable support in her years as dietitian from 1932 until 
her death in 1948. My years as dietitian since 1948 have 
increased my respect for Russell's ability and deepened 
the warm personal relationship all of us in the Foods 
Department felt for him. 

"His passing is a great personal loss to me." 

And representing the alumnae, this statement from 
Anna Preston Shaffner, '32, and Cortlandt Preston Creech, 
'35, "In our Salem days, Russell Crews meant a tall, 
imposing white hat and warm sugar cake ... in later years, 
whenever we were lucky enough to see Russell — as a 
member of an important civic board or as a major domo 
at Salem — we found him to be the same old and trusted 
friend and fine Christian gentleman we'd known for more 
than thirty years." 

Russell had a long record of service to the community. 
He was a deacon in the First Baptist Church, a member of 
the Board of Trustees of Memorial Industrial School, and 
a veteran worker with the Boy Scouts of America, Inc., 
having received the Silver Beaver award in 1966. 

But Salem College came first with Russell, and he 
held a place of affection and respect in the hearts of all 
students and all alumnae. 



Alumnae Speak Out 

COLLEGE CONDUCTS SELF -STUDY 



Salem's alumnae, exactly 1,149 of them from the classes 
of the last seven years, 1962 through 1968, are in the 
process of telling the College what they think of Alma 
Mater. This is being accomplished through a questionnaire 
mailed in early January. The results, when tabulated and 
interpreted by a special alumnae committee, will comprise 
a chapter in Salem's second 10-year self-study report for 
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 

But that's not all! Present students are being asked to 
do the same thing through a questionnaire designed by a 
special committee named by Student Government. Result 
should be interesting reading not only for the administra- 
tion, trustees and faculty, but for the team of visitors which 
will come to campus in the spring of 1970, with copies of 
the full report in hand, to check, verify and appraise. 

Meanwhile, eight other committees comprising faculty, 
trustees, alumnae and students are beginning work on 
aspects of the self -study. These cover (1) Purpose of the 
College; (2) Organization and Administration; (3) Edu- 
cational Program; (4) Financial Resources; (5) Faculty; 
(6) Library; (7) Student Personnel Services, and (8) 
Physical Plant. 

The essential purpose of the Institutional Self-Study 
Program, as explained by the Commission on Colleges of 
the Southern Association, is the improving of educational 
effectiveness in institutions of higher learning. The pro- 
cedures of the Program are designed to help institutions 
reassess their objectives, measure success in attaining ob- 
jectives, explore ways and means by which educational 
efficiency may be improved, and prepare for the ever-in- 
creasing demands by society. 

The program of Institutional Self-Study constitutes a 
process that has proved to be effective. It is one that per- 
mits an institution to measure itself qualitatively and to 
be measured by an evaluating committee of qualified edu- 
cators through the identification of strengths and weak- 
nesses, problems and solutions. 

Participation in the Institutional Self-Study Program is 
required periodically of all member institutions of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools; it is the 
process by which accreditation is reaffirmed. 

Salem was first accredited by the Southern Association 
in 1922 and was the sixth college and/or university in the 
State of North Carolina to qualify. It was the seventh in- 
stitution in the state (I960) to conduct a self -study fol- 
lowing adoption of this requirement in the late 1950's 
by the Southern Association. 

The Alumnae Committee, which is headed by Mary 
Louise Edwards, '38, of High Point, president of the 



Association, comprises also Virginia Anderson Basinger, '43, 
of Charlotte; Mary Dameron Holderness, '66, of Tarboro; 
Ann Darden Webb Freshwater, '57, of Morehead City; 
Vicki Hamilton Hagaman, '51, of Winston-Salem; Myra 
Dickson Myers, '50, of Winston-Salem; Nancy McClung 
Nading, '43, of Winston-Salem; Mary Bryant Newell, '48, 
of Charlotte; Sarah Tesch Salzwedel, '60, of Winston-Salem; 
E. Sue Cox Shore, '41, of Winston-Salem; Sarah Henry 
Ward, '43, of Lumberton, and Joan Reich Scott, '57, of 
Statesville. 

The committee met for a full day in the Fall, decided to 
poll only members of the last seven classes because these 
alumnae would be most familiar with present-day Salem, 
and then designed the questionnaire. 

Questions asked ranged from present occupation and 
activities of Alumnae ( and Salem's influence in these areas ) 
to curriculum, library, faculty effectiveness, student-faculty 
relationships, religious influences, counseling. Honor Code, 
Student Government, size of student body, and aspects of 
Salem's program needing strengthening. 

Replies came in promptly from many and were still 
arriving as this issue of the Bulletin went to press. The 
committee put no deadline on the reply date, but would 
like to have as many returns as possible by April 1. 

The other committees involved in the self-study are 
headed largely by faculty members and have heavy assign- 
ments as set by the Manual of the Southern Association. 
The section on Educational Program, for example, requires 
answers to 82 questions and/or directives; the section on 
Student Personnel Services, 98 questions. And so it goes. 

Salem's own committee evaluations are asked for in 
all instances. Projections for the future are requested. 
Explanations of recent changes are required. About the 
only matters untouched are the condition of the health 
of relatives of faculty and students, the politics of the 
janitorial staff, and the status of the air pollution program 
in Winston-Salem. 

In a word, the self-study is a study in depth of every- 
thing in and about Salem College. It requires the institution 
to take a close, hard, penetrating look at itself, to be 
completely honest in appraisal, to list shortcomings as 
well as achievements, and to be realistic about its plans, 
hopes, and dreams for the future. 

Salem's first Self-Study for the Southern Association 
required about 18 months of committee activity and com- 
prised 246 typewritten pages when completed . . . The 
present study may take longer in time and in number 
of pages. But the result will be good for Salem.

OUR TRAVELING TROUBADOURS 



Do you remember Dee Dee and Linda who appeared 
on the cover last May? The cover and the honor of having 
won a Campus Talent Show in competition with other 
North Carolina Colleges and Universities has led to an 
offer for an 8-weeks performing tour of Europe this 
summer under the auspices of the United States Defense 
Department. 

Linda Camp (standing) from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 
is about to join the alumnae ranks. She is a Voice major. 

Dee Dee Geraty is a Junior, majoring in History with 
a minor in Psychology. Her home is Charleston, South 
Carolina. 

The duo will be the entertainment for the Annual 
Alumnae Meeting on June 7 with selections of unusual 
folk music and their own adaptations of show music.

FUTURE SALEMITES 

Is there a young lady in your life you would like to 
interest in Salem College.' Is there some attention the 
College could be turning on your young friends.' A new 
Viewbook was published in February. Perhaps sending 
the booklet to your contact would stimulate further in- 
vestigation. 

The College realizes that Salem's particular quality 
which has produced the alumnae is best represented by 
you who know the College best. However, increasingly 
young students need and appreciate special introduction 
to a school someone considers "right" for them. 

May we be of service to our best saleswomen? Send

SYNOD INCREASES ALUMNAE TRUSTEES 



Alumnae representation on the Board of Trustees and 
the length of their terms have been doubled for the 
College, and increased one-third for the Academy. 

This means six College alumnae trustees instead of 
three, and three Academy alumnae instead of two, or a 
total of nine alumnae (better than 25%) on the Institu- 
tion's Board of 35 trustees . . . The terms of College 
alumnae trustees was increased to six years, instead of 
three years, and the terms of the Academy alumnae trustees 
was set at three years. 

Action to this effect was taken by the Triennial Synod 
of the Moravian Church, November 12-16, upon recom- 
mendation of the Board of Trustees itself. The recom- 
mendation by the Board was framed nearly a year ago 
when certain other changes in organization seemed desir- 
able and when alumnae trustees then on the Board began 
to feel that a three-year term was too short. "We're just 
getting well acquainted with College problems," they said, 
"when we're rotated off the Board." 

To fill the new trustee positions now available to 
alumnae of the College, the Executive Board of the Alum- 
nae Association, upon recommendation of the Nominating 
Committee, approved a plan of procedure at a meeting 
on January 9. 

The plan calls for extension of the terms of the present 
three alumnae trustees, as follows: Elizabeth Hendrick, 
'40, to continue for a fourth year, or until 1970; Margaret 
Newland, '19, to continue for an extra year, or until 1971; 
Judge Mary Gaither Whitener, '41, to continue an addi- 
tional year, or until 1972. 

To complete the complement of six trustees, three 
new ones will be elected by mail ballot this Spring, then 
one each year thereafter. 

Of the three to be elected this Spring, the one re- 
ceiving the largest number of votes will serve a full six- 
year term beginning with the fall meeting of the Board in 
October, 1969. The one receiving the second largest number 
of votes will serve a five-year term, and the third alumna 
elected will serve a four-year term. 



This will put the house in order so that, starting in 
1970 and continuing thereafter, the election of one alumna 
trustee will be held each year and the successful nominee 
will serve the full term of six years. 

It was felt desirable to take prompt advantage of the 
six trustee positions now available. The plan developed 
by the Nominating Committee and approved by rhe 
Executive Board does just that. 

The Synod effected several other changes, as recom- 
mended by the institution's trustees. One was the elimina- 
tion of two trustee positions which were previously pre- 
scribed by regulations of the Moravian Church: (1) the 
Pastor of Home Moravian Church and (2) the President 
of the College. 

The Pastor of Home Church is eligible, of course, for 
election to the Board of Synod; the present pastor. Dr. 
J. C. Hughes, was subsequently so elected . . . The President 
of the College had maintained for some years that he 
should not "sit in judgment" on his own performance, and 
Synod's endorsement of the proposed changes was received 
happily by him. 

Another significant change gives the Board the right 
to elect its own chairman. Previously this office was filled 
by the President of the Provincial Elders' Conference (the 
administrative board of the Church), as required by 
Synod regulations. Since the "old" regulations did not pro- 
vide for a vice chairman for the Board, this situation was 
corrected, and the Board, at its reorganization meeting on 
December 5, named a vice chairman for the first time in 
the history of the institution. 

In addition to the nine alumnae trustees now provided 
for, the Board comprises the five members of the Pro- 
vincial Elders' Conference of the Moravian Church, 15 
other Moravians elected by Synod on a rotating system 
whereby the maximum terms (9 years) of five trustees 
expire at three-year intervals, and six non-Moravian trustees 
elected by the Board. Two of these must rotate off the 
Board every three years.

Delias Festival 
Honors Alumnae 

Program Dedicated to the 
Late Mrs. Richmond 



The ninth city-wide Delius Festival, held in Jackson- 
ville, Florida, January 29-February 7, was dedicated to the 
late Mattie Belle Bullard Richmond. Mrs. Richmond, a 
liberal arts graduate of Salem in 1902, died July 15, 1968. 

Among the programs in honor of the composer Delius 
were concerts by the Friday Musicale, the Jacksonville Uni- 
versity Orchestra, and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. 
Some of the compositions on the programs were: "On 
Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring," "Florida Suite," and 
"Appalachia". 

Mrs. Richmond's interests are described in an article in 
The Times-Union and Journal of Jacksonville, as ranging 
widely through history and art but she was "best-known 
to Jacksonville for her enthusiasm and effort in behalf of 
the English composer, Frederick Delius, who lived on the 
St. Johns River less than a year in 1884, but showed the 



influence of Florida stamped on his music in succeeding 
years." 

Mrs. Richmond became interested in the composer 
after his death in 1934. She later discovered on a planta- 
tion the cottage in which he lived, moved it to the campus 
of Jacksonville University, and restored it. Mrs. Richmond 
drew praise for her work in behalf of Delius' music from 
Sir Thomas Beecham, who organized a Delius Festival in 
London. 

Elizabeth Wade Mc Arthur, class of 1899, a fellow 
citizen of Mrs. Richmond in Jacksonville and a fellow 
student at Salem, sent the programs and the articles. Mrs. 
McArthur wrote of Mattie Belle that the "many accomplish- 
ments of this Salem girl would inspire and be of great 
interest to all the Salem College alumnae who read the 
Salem College Bullettn and cherish the memory of Salem."

Christmas 1968 has passed, and I am 
confident it brought much joy to every 
grandmother. 

My scrapbook of Salem College has a 
snapshot of LOUISE HARPER FOX hold- 
ing her great granddaughter in 1953. 
Louise had a fine husband, three children, 
and a large number of family descendants. 
She considered the rearing of her family 
as her greatest accomplishment. Hope 
Louise is well enough to write again. She 
says: "Salem prepared me for a most use- 
ful life." 

Like Louise, PAULINE SESSOMS 
BURCKEL has traveled much and had a 
beautiful life. For the past year she has 
visited with her sister in El Paso and her 
two brothers in Tampa, Fla. Pauline has

Salem and is one of our most beloved and 
finest girls. 

CARRIE OGBURN GRANTHAM had

We have lost two outstanding class- 
mates in MARY WOOD COOK MEANS 
and MAUDE FOY MOORE. Maude's 
hometown newspaper said of her: "She was 
a Gold Star Mother, member of West 
New Bern Presbyterian Church. She was 
listed in Who's Who in American Women. 
In 1914 she began writing poems, articles 
and editorials for the New Bern Sun- 
Journal. Some of her poems have been 
published in various newspapers. She was 
a member of the American League of 



American Pen Women." It was on the 
recommendation of Maude and her daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth, that I was admitted to the 
American Pen Women. I do thank all 
classmates who have kept in touch and 
made it possible for me to send in news 
of '03 Class for Salem Bulletin. 

Very best wishes and new hopes for 
us in the inauguration of Richard M. 
Nixon. A very learned friend of mine says 
he admires Mr. Nixon tremendously. I 
pray he may be able to help establish 
Peace on Earth and to preserve our South- 
land and States Rights. I have never 
known a finer lady than Richard Nixon's 
mother, and I believe much of her fine 
character lives in him. 

God bless all of you. .

The important news for the Class of 
1909 is that this marks the 60th year 
since our graduation. Can you believe it? 
White caps and gowns, the Daisy Chain, 
diplomas from the hands of Dr. John H. 
Clewell, and Miss Lehman's blessings as 
we left those portals sixry years ago, all 
flicker across the screen of memory. This 
will be a distinct privilege for us and we 
urge as many as possible to make the 
effort to meet at Salem one more time to 
indulge in reminiscence and enjoy seeing 
one another mellowed with age but still 
young in spirit. You will receive further 
communications soon announcing our plans 
and hopes for Alumnae Day on May 31st. 

Local Salem gitls have already expressed 
their interest in our reunion and will be 
there. A Christmas card from BERTIE

The following news was received from 
ETHEL KIMEL DEVEREAUX; 

Happy New Year, Girls of Class 1911. 
RUTH SCHOTT HANSON of Bethel, 
Alaska, had her daughter-in-law to visit 
on account of her blindness. Ruth has 
had her share of illness the past years, 
but she is able to take care of herself — 
having lots of snow in Bethel this year but 
her grandchildren are having a wonderful 
time making tunnels and "ditch" houses 
while the snow remains soft. 

EMILY KENNEDY THURSTON from 
Weiser, Idaho, says her thoughts turn back 
to Salem most every day. She is hoping 
to get back for a visit to Tennessee next 
summer. Their youngest brother and wife 
came out from Chicago in October where 
they attended a Bankers' Convention and 
spent several days with her. Emily has 
several relatives living in Knoxville, but 
her brother is the only immediate mem- 
ber of her family who continues to live 
there. My two grandsons, Mary's David 
and Ned's Stephen, show no serious in- 
terest in girls — David will graduate this 
year from the University of Iowa in Jan- 
uary, and Stephen is a sophomore at 
Boise State College — Ned's nine-year 
old and Nancy complete the list. 

I still enjoy my apartment here and 
manage to keep busy. Quite often my 
Volkswagen and I get over to Fayetteville 
to see friends and attend a DAR meeting. 
Also attend social groups I've belonged to 
over the years. I have a sister-in-law" there, 
and I can always spend the night with her. 
Men certainly must be the weaker sex, as 
most all my contemporaries are widows. 
ELIZABETH BOYD FANELLI writes, 
"The past year has been uneventful. Thank- 
ful to say all is well with the members of 
my family. My only difficulty is the in- 
firmity of old age, arthritis, which slows 
me down considerably. Good wishes to any 
of the Salemites of our "Era" whom you 
may happen to see." 

LOUISE TAYLOR writes from Green- 
ville, S. C, where she is staying with 
her daughter. She tells me she broke her 
leg in August — but after she was well 
enough to leave the nursing center, she 
has been with her daughrer. She plans 
to return to her Morristown home in 
January. Good luck to you, Louise. 

LOUISE HORTON BARBER has had a 
broken shoulder for over two months 
but is recovering in Florida now. 

I know you will regret to hear of the 
passing of OLIVE ROGERS POPE. I heard 
she fell and broke her hip in September, 



followed a few weeks later by a fatal 
heart attack. 

ELSA MAUDE HAURY died October 
II, 1968. It was just almost impossible 
to believe — as I had a long letter tell- 
ing me about retiring and all the honors 
she had received. She must have had a 
wonderful life at the college she taught. 

KATHERINE GRIFFITH — the same 
smart girl — tells me she is enjoying life 
and everyone. She enjoys hearing from all 
the girls — says she does not get to go 
out much, only riding — she enjoys rid- 
ing. 

My husband goes to Raleigh occasional- 
ly, and the next time he makes the trip, 
I expect to invite myself to go and stay 
in Durham. 

Thanks to all the girls who sent me 
cards Christmas — I enjoyed them so 
much.

joyed the wonderful restoration and hope 
I can have a meal some day in the 
latest building that has been restored, the 
dining room next door to the Tavern." 
The dining room is now open. I hope 
Mary Lou will return and many of you 
who read about the restoration will visit 
Old Salem and the college campus. The 
college has changed almost as much as 
the restored village. 

MELEDIETH FRAZIER has retired and

MARGARET BRICKENSTEIN LEIN-

From our class, we must regretfully 
report that RUTH CREDLE died on Janu- 
ary llth. She had taught for many years 
in the schools of eastern Carolina. Many of 
us saw her at the 1964 reunion. MAR- 
GARET BLAIR McCUISTON is serving 
on the Alumnae Board, her second term, 
and it is good to know that we are repre- 
sented by her. MAUD KERNER RING 
was hospitalized last summer but is home 
and writes she is "trying to be sensible". 
Her son and his family live nearby and 
their daughter, Ann Hall Ring, entered 
Salem Academy this year. She represents 
the 6th generation. ADDIE McKNIGHT 
WHICKER of North Wilkesboro lost her 
husband last fall. I am sure the sympathy 
of her classmates goes out to her. 

1914 has its 55th reunion coming up 
this May. Please start making your plans 
to come. Your secretary will be planning 
to do so from Massachusetts. After 5 years 
you need a new secretary who lives nearer 
base and can give you more news.

I had a note from MILDRED WILL- 
COX, who is at the Methodist Church 
Home in Cornwell, Pa. Mildred writes: 
"It is too bad none of the class gave you 
news for the Salem Bulletin. I remember 
you and admired you in class ... I 
raught academic subjects and music in 
North Carolina and Pa. We moved to 
Philadelphia in 191 7, to Coatesville in 
1945, and my step-mother and I moved 
here in 1967. I still teach a few piano 
pupils, do volunteer work in V. A. Hospi- 
tal, make cancer dressings here, drive my 
car, assist in our infirmary, work for our 
semi-annual bazaar, practice organ, play 
piano for S. S. and prayer meeting, partici- 
pate in a prayer group and take my turn 
at devotions in our dining room." 

I am happy that Mildred leads such an 
active life. What about the rest of you?

RUTH PARRISH (Mrs. E. M. Casa

time. After Christmas Ruth, and her 
sister, Mary Parrish, '21, (Mrs. Talmage 
Rose) and Mr. Rose, toured much of 
Florida. Returning home they stopped for 
a stay at Jekyll Island off the coast of 
Georgia. Now Ruth and Gladys Teague 
(Mrs. Ira Teague) have signed up for a 
delighrful trip to New Orleans and 
Natchez, Miss., leaving here March 22. 
Lovely homes and gardens at their height 
of spring bloom will be toured. 

Just last week Ruth and Algine were 
seen at Graylyn signing up as a charter 



member of the Amos Cottage Guild. They 
were also signing up for some volunteer 
work for the Amos Cottage. ALGINE 
FOY (Mrs. Julius Neely) with her daugh-

News from MELISSA HANKINS is that 
she has just moved into her newly built 
home in a beautiful wooded area in 
Lawrenceville, N. J. Many birds abound 
on this property, according to Melissa, in- 
cluding mocking birds, and some robins, 
which Melissa says do not know it is 
winter in New Jersey. She is enjoying do- 
ing a lot of volunteer work in the Presby-

time working with the Christmas bazaar. 
Melissa's new address is 8 Tenlaw Road, 
Lawrenceville, N. J. 0864. 

During the Christmas holidays Melissa, 
sister, Nancy (Mrs. Albert Van Zandt of 
Blawenburg, N. J.) and Nancy's daughter, 
Ann, journeyed to New York for a gay 
time. 

Second hand news from RACHEL 
LUCKENBACH (Mrs. Hugh Holcomb of 
Mt. Airy) is that she is still on the go . . . 
traveling a lot, doing much church work, 
and thoroughly enjoying those grand- 
children! 

BETSY EAMES says: "The most attrac- 
tive Christmas card I received was a picture 
in color of KATHERINE HOWARD (al- 
ways "Katy" to me! ) and her two ador- 
able grandchildren in the garden of her 
house ar Marblehead, Mass. 

It was good to have cards from a num-

friends is one of the nicest things about 
Christmas.

come. It always has!"

card from Seville, Spain, as she, with 
two daughters and sister, spent several 
weeks in Spain and Portugal, in the fall. 
Quote: "Both are lovely and interesting. 
We are having a lovely time." 

BELLE LEWTER WEST is still interest-

each week with her sister, Florine, in 
Nursing Home. 

I appreciated a card from D. W. Hunter, 
CARMEL ROTHROCK'S husband. I have 
written to him, from the class. 

HENRIETTA WILSON FERGUSON 
writes, "I am expecting my sister out the 
middle of January. We have plans for 
some activity then. We've been sorta' slow- 
ing up energetically. The weather is de- 
lightful, but when the wind comes off 
the snowy mountains, it's chilly." 

MARY FEIMSTER OWEN is plan- 
ning to retire at the end of this year as 
she thinks it is time to give up her work 
with the girls in Coltrane Hall. 

EVELYN ALLEN TRAFTON is enjoy-

Allen girls were to be together during the 
holidays. 

While on a short vacation trip in Sep- 
tember, I missed a step, fell and sprained 
both ankles and fracrured a knee cap. 
I'm taking therapy now and am almost

this commencement with especial interest. 
You know, we don't have a Fiftieth Re-

chattels and join us for a jolly good time. 

Just a reminder that our class dinner

you there as well as at the meeting and 
luncheon at noon on that day. Please let 
us know, so we can reserve you a place for 
dinner. 

I am saving all classnotes for the sum- 
mer issue of the Bulletin, as we hope to 
have a lot of interesting things to tell by 
that time, especially the amount of our 
gifts to the new Alumnae Fund appeal. 

In January, our hearts were saddened 
by the death of our dear and loyal class- 
mate, MARGIE HASTINGS PRATT. She 
was always present at Alumnae meetings 
and was counting on being present at our 
Fiftieth Reunion.

ouiselves lucky. Do hope that our class- 
mates are among the fortunate who are still 
well and able to face the future without 
fear or anxiety. 

One more year and we will have our 
50th anniversary and I hope a happy re- 
union. It will be such a joy to see those 
whom we haven't seen for so long, and 
catch up on grandchildren, sons and daugh- 
ters. Let's have an "art gallery"to display 
them, shall we? (I can hear some of the 
"what a corny idea" all the way here). 
Anyway it was just a thought. 

Please let's see if we can't make our 
class among those who respond 100% 
to our Alma Mater's need when the call 
comes in the near future. Maybe some 
of us won't be able to do what we would 
like to do, but let's be sure to remember 
that a lot of small contributions add up to 
a tidy sum, and do what we can. Even a 
dollar each would add up to nearly $50.00. 

I have news items from NANCY HAN-

I wish out 1920 Class would send in 
news of themselves so this poor correspond-

repoft. I have written or called eight 
"girls.'" out of the class to enlist their aid 
in Salem's coming drive for funds. Six 
have replied that they would. One said she 
wasn't able and one has not replied at all. 
That sounds like a very good response to 
me. Thank you so much! Each of you 
will know irho you are so I shan't name 
names.

so many old people of our church and 
community have died that those of us 
who have escaped so far can consider

down the Amazon to Rio de Janerio. 
Maidie traveled into Egypt about a year 
ago. She had her picture taken sitting on a 
camel. She was on a world tout. 

TED WOLFF WILSON is a great one 
to travel. She is on a trip out west, leaving 
on November II, 1968. Here is her route'; 
to Monticello, Arkansas, to visit a class- 
mate FAY R. POMEROY. On to Okla- 
homa, Texas, San Francisco (to visit her 
brother and family), on to Oregon, Wash- 
ington, then to San Francisco again to 
spend Christmas. Afterwards to southern 
California. Ted plans to visit friends and 
relatives in each place. She also plans to 
go into Mexico before returning home. 

Here are excerpts from ELIZABETH 
WHITEHEAD ELLINGTONS story of 
her 1968 trip to many interesting places 
on another continent. I'm not sure that I 
can do justice to her report. Elizabeth 
writes: "In April I sailed from New York 
on the "Leonardo da 'Vinci", landed in 



Naples, and toured up to "Venice. There I 
joined a group of Archaeologists. We spent 
the month of May cruising down the 
Adriatic with stops in Yugoslavia and 
Greece. We passed the Island of Scorpios, 
but saw no sign of the Onassis family." 
Other interesting places visited were Crete, 
Asia Minor, the coast of Turkey, Ankara, 
Cappadocia, Macedonia, Pella (the birth- 
place of Alexandet the Great). She also 
visited Pompeii, Italy, Salzburg, Munich, 
Copenhagen, Dublin and London. Aftei 
being away for five months, Elizabeth sail- 
ed from Cobh, Ireland, on the Queen 
Elizabeth for New York. 

RUTH PARLIER LONG'S grandson. 
Tommy Cranford, is a student council 
member, sign painter, and musician. He

I shall suppress the temptation to 
philosophize about those eager seniors 
who 45 years ago this Spring dashed so 
busily about campus, cap tassels swishing, 
black robes flapping over recently length- 
ened dresses, in the interest of setting down 
the scraps of news I have been able to 
collect recently. For scraps from the table 
of your varied and interesting lives, I am

filled with news of you and yours Doing

feel certain, be "gratefuler". Five of us, 
POLLY, ELIZABETH, BLANCHE, OLIVE-

so far as I know, are still going strong.

thinking of the Wilmington contingent, I 
was delighted recently to have a telephone 
call from MARGARET HASHAGEN 
VINCENT, now living at Quebec House,

team to the Sugar Bowl game. EDITH

the Peach Bowl on her mind along with 
the heavy load of teaching, mostly of 
graduate students. LOUISE YOUNG CAR- 
TER still wants a 1924 class ring, if anyone 
wants to part with hers.

usefulness. Lovely Christmas cards from 
LOIS NEAL ANDERSON, Mullins, S. C, 
PAULINE TURNER DOUGHTON, Spar-

recuperating from an illness after being 
hospitalized for several weeks during the 
holidays. We hope her asthma is much 
better. I talked to Laura, also. Laura told 
me that her sister, Nettie Allen Thomas 
Voges, '24, recently made tapes of Mrs. 
Kenneth Pfohl's music while Mrs. Pfohl 
was visiting Elizabeth Pfohl Campbell, '23, 
in Arlington, Va. Nettie Allen lives in 
nearby Alexandria. Congratulations to 
Laura on being seleaed one of the out- 
standing career women in Charlotte this 
fall. Her picmre appeared in the Observer. 
Laura, a senior chemist in the process re- 
search department of the Kendall Company, 
was named in the field of business and 
industry. Each category winner received a 
sterling bud vase with gold rose attached, 
and mounted on an engraved walnut base. 
Laura has made her annual generous gift to 
the Alumnae Fund, and, as usual, her 
company has matched the donation. For a 
long time Laura has done this, and we 
are grateful for her loyalty. Let's all give 
to the fund this year. 

RUTH PFOHL GRAMS sent a beautiful 
Christmas card from California. It was a 
picture of herself playing a harp. She 
looked so young it might have been taken 
in Memorial Hall in 1927. Her long, 
flowing dress seemed to suit the magnifi- 
cent instrument. On the card was Ruth's 
original verse, which included these lines: 
The Christmas carol themes are old, 
The harp and harpist, too. 
But still I can play 
In a tuneful way 
My very best wishes to you. 
Thank you, Ruth, for this inspiring pic- 
ture and verse. 

I had a note from FRANCES MASON

AROUND THE 
WORLD. . . 




Many Salem students say they derive great pleasure 
from courses in literature, music, philosophy and other 
liberal and fine arts subjects. But some ask: What good 
do these subjects do me.' What job can I get when I leave 
college? 

A group of recent Salem Alumnae seemed to find that 
a liberal and fine arts background enabled them to find 
a job and/or make a home anywhere — and continue their 
education to which they received an index in college. So 
they tucked their sheepskins under their arms, packed 
some intangible values an index gives, and set out happily 
all over the world — to Minaki to London to Saigon. 

One of these travelers, Felicity Craig Hughes, '61, holds 
many jobs: wife, mother, printer, merchant, teacher, writer. 
Husband, Glyn, who teaches in St. Andrew's College in 
Minaki, Tanzania, "takes his mind off things by working 
at the printing shop he started last year. At the moment 
we have one antediluvian press, but we may get a Ford 
Foundation grant which would enable us to get more 
modern equipment. Apart from providing training for 
students, the press is financially self-supporting. We are 
producing a series of greeting cards using African sculpture 
designs. We have sold over 5,000 so far locally, and Glyn 
is hoping to launch into the export market next year. 
Another project which keeps him busy is the school farm 
... by using a combination of the manual labour of 
students and teachers and mechanical ploughing, we cleared 
and planted 10 acres last term, and hope to double this by 
the long rains in March." 

Five-year old daughter, Helen, entered the International 
School in Dar es Salaam in September. She makes the 18- 
mile drive every day with a neighbor who teaches in the 
school. Young Gwynneth attends a play school Felicity 
(Flicky to us) started at Minaki with "two Africans 
(Swahili-speaking), two Indian girls (Hindu-speaking), 
and one African boy who speaks only his tribal language. 
Flicky hopes to teach the Swahili-speakers to read Swahili, 
and the others to understand, read and speak English." 

But Flicky 's big news is that Jonathan Cape has accept- 
ed for publication her book, The Real Reading Revolution. 
The book, which grew out of Flicky's reading, her back- 
ground in England and the United States, her experiences 
m teaching in Jamaica and in Africa, deals with theories of 
reading. What interests her, Flicky says, is "the revolution- 
ary theory . . . that a child reads a word when he sees it 
as a symbol, and understands what that symbol represents. 
He does not have to be able to say the word, or even to 
know what it sounds like." 

Flicky twitted me by saying she tried to: "Revise, 
revise, revise . . . Scrap the jargon. No nasty pompous 
phraseology. Be Specific." 

Another traveler happily living in far parts is Beth 
Bobbit Aultman, '63. Beth lives with her husband, Tom, in 




AND BACK 



Saigon, where Tom flies for Air America, and Beth plays 
the piano at the Tan Son Nhut USO. They enjoy their nice 
villa and "superb Chinese houseboy", lived through the 
terror of the TET Offensive, spent their vacation in Japan 
and Hong Kong. Their tentative plans are to build a home 
in the Seminole Lakes Country Club Estates outside St. 
Petersburg, Florida, when they come back to the United 
States. 

I haven't had letters recently from Nan Williams 
Gibson, '60, in London, Martha Duval Pryor, '59, in Am- 
sterdam, and Lynn Hamrick Thorbjornsen, '58, in Oslo. 
Friends who have heard from or seen them recently say 
rhey fit admirably into their adopted countries, have 
learned or are learning to speak the native languages (yes, 
Nan would find British, in a sense, a foreign language, 
though not as foreign as Martha would find Dutch), are 
bringing up lots of children. Lynne even has twins! I don't 
know what other jobs they hold, but what they do seems 
good enough for me. 

Several years ago another group of Salem Alumnae 
set out to far parts of the globe with the Peace Corps. 
Apparently their index to an education enabled them to 
enrich the lives of people in Iran, in Columbia, in Tunisia, 
and to further their own education. For they came back to 
follow diverse careers of service and to enrich life in the 
United States. 

Alta Lu Townes, '61, in the Peace Corps in Iran 1965- 
67 entered fully into life there. Having received an M.A. 
in English at the University of California after graduation 
from Salem, she was appointed to teach English in the 
University of Pahlavi at Shiraz. In her spare time she 
visited in Iranian homes, delighted in travel over 
hazardous roads, reveled in strange foods, tutor- 
ed individuals, taught English in a high school boys' 
Young Club, taught modern dance, and started a kinder- 
garten in an orphanage. On the occasion of Pahlavi Uni- 
versity's first graduation she choreographed a student pro- 
gram of modern dance for the visit of the Queen. After 
the program she was the first to be presented to the 
Queen. She had wondered if she might be banished for 
having boys and girls dance together on stage in a tradi- 
tional Moslem country! 

Back in the United States, she has put her knowledge 
to good use. For two summers she has worked on the staff 
of two Peace Corps-Iran training programs — one at 
Reed College in Oregon and one last summer in Vermont. 
She stayed on to teach English as a foreign language in the 
School for International Training of the Experiment in 
International Living. "The work is wonderful," she writes. 
"In fact it doesn't even seem like work ... I have one 
class of 8 students from seven countries: Iran, Korea, 
Congo, Tunisia, Columbia, Mexico, and France." 

Alta Lu enjoys her "charming cottage" in the woods 
six miles from her work, has learned ro ski, and says she 
now understands "why so many poets come from New 



England." She ends her letter with one of her own poems, 
the last lines of which are: 

If we but cease our futile frenzy 

and pause to hear 

and to heed 

and to help. 
Mary Alice Powell Adams, '60, went to South America 
with her husband in 1963 to work in the Peace Corps. They 
lived in Call, Valle, Colombia, in a low income section 
where they worked in urban community development. 
Mary Alice and her husband excited friendly curiosity 
among the natives and soon learned that "privacy, that 
prerogative so cherished by North Americans, was a pre- 
rogative forgotten for Peace Corps volunteers." But they 
found life exciting and rewarding. Mary Alice, a major 
in English, played the organ at church meetings, taught 
typing, helped form a consumer cooperative. Mary Alice 
said "we could never give to Colombia in rwo years what 
Colombia gave to us for the rest of our lives." 

Back in the United States Mary Alice is in Chapel Hill 
wirh her husband and adopted son, where she is studying 
on a fellowship for an advanced degree in social work. 

Mary Jackson Pohl, '64, "little Mary Sunshine" at 
Salem, was in the Peace Corps 1964-66 in Tunis, Tunisia. 
A voice student at Salem, she taught English in the French 
language to the French-speaking Arabs! Mary says that a 
Peace Corps volunteer "must of all things be flexible." 
On her return to the United States she visited college 
campuses to promote the Peace Corps and pave the way 
for recruiters. Now married and living in Alexandria, 
Minnesota, she directs a school for retarded children. 

Not the Peace Corps but Oxford and marriage beckon- 
ed Alice Reid Digilio, '64, where her husband was a 
Rhodes scholar and took a degree in mathematics; Alice, 
a degree in English. Back in Washington, D. C, Rodger 
is doing Systems Analysis Computer work at the Pentagon, 
Alice teaching English at Washington University. Both 
work happily in their spare time to restore an old house 
they have bought in Alexandria. 

Lira Huffman Brown, '67, also followed her husband, 
Thomas, to Honolulu, where he interned and Lita taught 
English in St. Andrews Priory. Her work, writes Lita, was 
"as perfect as any first year teacher could ask for," in spite 
of keeping her from the tantalizing diversions of Hawaii. 
Lita and Thomas are now in Washington, D. C, where 
Thomas has a residency in Radiology for three years at 
Walter Reed Hospital and Lita is planning to find some 
substitute teaching while doing graduate study in English. 
Now the girls mentioned in this article may not agree 
that a liberal and fine arts education is a good index 
with which to go around the world and back. They may 
even wish fervently they had taken vocational courses. The 
ideas stated here were taken, deduced from their letters. 
Their disagreement will be fine with me, for then they 
will write me from Oslo and Amsterdam and Minaki — 
and Chapel Hill. Jess Byrd

to go up for an early visit. Husband, John, 
has retired. Frances told of her many losses 
in the past few years. MARY LEIGH 
MASON WATKINS died in 1967. Mary 
Leigh and Frances came to Salem together 
and made such an attraaive sister-team. 
In 1967 Frances lost two other sisters, 
and in 1966 her only son. I am sorry that 
we had not heard earlier of these sad 
events. Our deepest sympathy, now, to 
you and yours. 

I had the Salem tea in November, as 
planned, and had a lovely time myself. 
It was lots of fun, and attended by twenty 
loyal Salern girls. Others had influenza, 
no baby sitters, or were sunning in the 
Bahamas. After a social hour we distributed 
the Moravian cookies. If you are ever 
chairman, this is the ideal way to get 
them into the hands of the alumnae. We 
cleared $65 on the sale, and sent a check 
for $100 to the Alumnae Scholarship 
Fund. 

I am rejoicing over my seventh grand, 
a lovely great-niece, born in January. She 
is the grandchild of my sister, Lucy Hart- 
sell Biggers, Academy '21, and is named 
for her. My namesake is Margaret Rogers, 
now almost two, and a future Salem girl, 
I hope. Even at this tender age I can tell 
that she is Salem material. 

We regret to hear of the death of the 
mother of ELIZABETH HASTINGS Mc- 
CORKLE and Louise Hastings Hill, '26

many months. Our deepest sympathy to 
her devoted husband, Ike and brother, 
Harry. 

A letter from ELIZA WAHMANN says

as much as its forward thinking program 
and think there is a definite need in 
today's world for a girls' college." She also 
adds she would gladly give of her time 
to Salem's new program and contribute 
even though it sometimes looks like the 
widow's mite. 

From one of our farthest-away class- 
mates, SARAH KINCAID MILSTEAD, 
writes that her husband is not well and 
"much of my time is taken up with him." 

I have recently had business and pleasure 
contacts with many of you but please write

thinking! Classmates have said they look 
forward to each issue for news of you.

A lovely letter from KATHRYN SCH- 
LEGEL HUGHES tells us that she is still 
teaching and loving it despite the fact 
that children are quite different today. 
This past summer she went to Nicaragua 
to visit her sister Martha Schlegel Marx, 
'36, who is a missionary there. Kay's 
travels also included Guatemala City, 
Mexico City and Acapulco. She was unable 
to see ELIZABETH MARX in Nicaragua 
because of the distance and plane schedules 
involved. Elizabeth soon goes to Germany 
for several months on furlough. RUTH 
ELLEN FOGLEMAN and Kay had lunch 
together in Philadelphia some time ago. 
Kay's two children are married and have 
children of their own. Daughter just re- 
cently received her Master's from Temple 
University, and son, a graduate of the 
University of Virginia, is stationed at the 
Naval Air Station in Pensacola. 

MARGARET SIEWERS TURNER'S 
youngest son is in third year at Bowman 
Gray Medical School in Winston-Salem. 
He was recently married to a lovely girl 
from Lynchburg. Margaret and her hus- 
band still live in the country and "baby-sit" 
the boys' horses. 

GRACE MARTIN BRANDAUER and 
her husband are now in the States on what 
may be their terminal leave. Their address 
is 4241 Robbins Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 
19135. She writes inspiringly of the many 
wonderful experiences and opportunities 
they have had in their thirty-three years 
of unbroken missionary service in Indo- 
nesia, how greatly God has blessed them 
in their work and the progress they have 
made. 

MARY NORRIS COOPER'S daughter, 
Doris, was married in May to John McCoy 
by her son, Carl, who is a Presbyterian 
minister. One son hves in Washington, the 
other in McLean, Virginia. Mary and her 
daughter had a fine trip to Europe and 
Greece last year. 

MARY ELIZABETH ROSS BEVIS of 
Lawrenceville, New Jersey, writes, "I do 
not know how much I have ever sent into 
Salem about myself. After two years at 
Salem I transferred to Mary Baldwin and 
switched majors. I was graduated from 
there with an AB in 1931 and received a 
BS at Northwestern in 1932 and did 
graduate work at Northwestern. My sister,

When I was in Charlotte last Fall, I had 
an extended telephone conversation with 
WILHELMINA WOHLFORD LINE- 
BERRY. Plans for retirement on the coast 
are delayed because her very active hus- 
band, Stan, accepts a new responsibility 
as fast as he retires from an old one. 
He is at present a consultant for several 
community colleges. Both still enjoy flying. 
BRONA SMOTHERS MASTEN sent 
news of the death in Charlotte, of HAZEL 
BRADFORD FLYNN'S husband, Fletcher. 
He was a vice president of Dillard Paper 
Co. Our sympathy to Hazel and her 
family. 

Brona is not only busy with her Win- 
ston-Salem family, but sometimes enjoys 
the responsibility of her two grandchildren 
from Pennsylvania. 

News from PAT HOLDERNESS DAVIS: 
"Happy to report that all goes well with 
the Lee Davis clan. Lee, Jr., wife, and two 
children moved to Richmond last June. 
He was graduated from the University of 
Virginia Law School, and we were so 
happy when he took a job with a law 
firm here in Richmond. Patsy did social 
work in Washington, D. C, until Christ- 
mas when she temporarily "retired" and 
went with me to Mexico for the month 
of February. We had a wonderful time 
and also took in New Orleans and Natchez 
on the way home. Our youngest son, Allan, 
was graduated from Duke last June. He is 
now working for the First Union Bank in 
Durham. Lee and I feel so blessed to have 
our children nearby. 

Lee and I enjoyed a week of golf and 
tanning at Myrtle Beach. We ran into 
several Salem students who gave me the 
latest news of Salem." 

KITTY BROWN WOLFE and her hus- 
band. Bob, spent their summer vacation in 
the West. Now that Bob has retired per- 
haps they'll decide to settle in North Caro- 
lina. No decision can be made, however, 
until Bob finishes his term as mayor of

Sympathy is extended to MARGUERITE 



PIERCE SHELTON, whose husband, Wil- 
liam, passed away in November, 1968, at 
their home in Ayden, N. C. 

LENA PETREE BULLARD reports 
that her only son was shot during combat 
in Viet Nam on August 12, 1968. After 
being treated in Japan, he was returned to 
the Marine base at New River, North 
Carolina. By now, if he recovered as anti- 
cipated, he has resumed flying. 

RUTH PRICE PATTON (Mrs. Paul R. 
of 111 Breazeale Avenue, Mt. Olive, North 
Carolina 28365) writes that she is plagued 
by glaucoma and other eye trouble, and 
has lost her left eye. With the help of her 
wonderful husband who keeps busy with 
his wholesale grocery and real estate 
business, she says she is able to keep 
going. Their younger son, Walter, who is 
a junior at U.N.C., is majoring in physics. 
Their older son, Stuart, who married Irene 
Sain of Hildebran, is band director in 
Edenton, North Carolina, where his wife 
is public school music teacher. Paula, 
daughter of Stuart and Irene, is the only 
grandchild that Ruth and Paul have. 

At the last get-together of the Class of

which will be announced before the first

has contacted the Alumnae Office.

I haven't been left out this month." 

Your correspondent continues to teach 
at Patrick Henry High School near Ash- 
land, Virginia, and doesn't have any lack 
of jobs to keep her busy, with a high 
school son and daughter! Driving twenty- 
six miles to school, taking graduate work 
at the University of Virginia, and running 
a household where two older sons (one a 
college senior and the other a junior) 
may run in at any moment with several 
loads of laundry, isn't calculated to leave 
one worrying over "leisure time"!! 

Please get busy and send in your news, 
direa to your correspondent. I'll try to get 
to reunion, provided that the giving and 
taking of exams doesn't conflict! How 
about you?

As a Class Correspondent I have not 
received much news to impart to the 
members. My only reports come from 
the Christmas cards. 

LAURA PITTS DAVIS sent her yearly 
News Letter and reports a new address, 
308 N. Live Oak Street, Boerne, Texas. 
Son, Pitts, a high school junior, is Drum 
Major of the school band. Son, Bill, is in 
the eighth grade. 

CHARLOTTE KING STRATTON'S 
sons are both in college, and away from 
home. Richard is a senior and Bill, a 
sophomore. She and husband. Bill, keep 
busy with volunteer work for church and 
hospital. 

LOIS BERKEY ARNOLD'S son is a 
junior at SMU. Her two daughters are 
in the 11 th and 9th grades. 

DOT HUTAFF wrote about the Alum- 
nae Fund — and we do hope 
each and every one of '38 will plan to 
include Salem on their list of "deductible 
contributions." You will be hearing more 
about this later. Dot also wrote: "There's 
nothing new of interest. However I did 
have interesting contarts with some of 
the 1938 class members in their generous 
reply to help with the campaign. Twelve 
of them offered to help. I'm still teaching 
kindergarten and look with interest at the 
possibility of kindergartens as a part of 
our public school system." 

Our sympathy to FLORENCE JOYNER 
BO'WEN whose mother, Mrs. O. L. Joyner 
of Kernersville died in January and to 
MYRTLE CLAY SANDEFUR whose

cation at Swannonoa. Their oldest son is

two are in college, and the youngest, Dell, 
is a freshman in high school. 

FELICIA MARTIN MELVIN writes that 
her son, Jim, is an Infantry Lieutenant in 
Vietnam. Her younger son, Marty, is in 
his junior year at U.N.C. Daughter, Peggy, 
hopes to be at Salem in September. 

I had a wonderful letter from CARO- 
LINE PFOHL CARTER. She and Walter 
have two grandchildren. Hans has his 
doctorate now in statistics and is with 
the Department of Biometry at the Medi- 
cal School of VCU (formerly MCV). 
Bruce is married and is in his third year 
of medicine at UVA in Charlottesville. 
Beth is a sophomore at Salem and loves it. 

WORTH SPENCE GARDNER sent a 
lovely picture of her family, including her 
new daughter-in-law and beautiful white 
poodle. Two of her boys are in college, 
one at the Air Force Academy, and the 
other at Virginia. Mary is an 8th grader 
and her mother's delight in helping fill 
the house with noise, since the boys are 
gone. She was expecting them all home 
for Christmas. Worth is now working 
with applied Septems Technology in 
Vienna, Virginia, as Office Manager. 

ELIZABETH HEDGECOCK SPARKS 
continues to make us proud of her. She 
has been named a grand prize winner in 
New York City in a search among the 
nation's newspaper food editors for the 
best party ideas. Our Journal claims that 
she has consistently drawn more mail 
than any other writer or department of 
the Journal. 

MARTHA MacNAIR TORNOW is 
still one of our best correspondents. Her 
son, MacNair, will finish his Law Degree 
in June and take his state exams in August. 

I had a good visit with PEGGY 
ROGERS GAINEY in December as she 
was passing through Winston-Salem. She 
and Bill are new grandparents of a few 
months. They and her parents and daugh- 
ter, Tricia, had been to Florida to visit 
Becky and her husband and to see the 
baby baptized. 

MILDRED MYERS CAPERTON of 
Culpepper, Virginia, was elected to the 
Vestry of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 
this being the first time a lady has held 
such a position. She is also the First Vice- 
President of Episcopal Churchwomen, Dio- 
cese of Virginia. 

My days continue to be overflowing 
with "doings" of every sort. Burton re- 
ceived his Wings from the Air Force in 
October, married a beautiful Texas blonde 
in November, visited us for two weeks at 
Christmas, and will go to Vietnam in 
April to fly cargo planes. Agnes will make 
us grandparents in May, just in time to 
join the rest of you in June picture-swap- 
ping. Many of you remember my mother 
and father — they have just had a 60th 
wedding anniversary. Mother a 90th and 
Daddy an 85th birthday. They live in the 
same house on Beach Street — one of the 
few left there. Mother broke her collar 
bone Christmas week, but is now up and 
around again. They continue to amaze us 
all.

The following information was received 
from LOUISE JACKSON JOLITZ of 
Clinton, N. C, on October 22nd. "Herman 
has retired and is back at home buried in 
ham radio. Babs, the 15 year old, and I 
spent a month this summer in Rhode Island 
with Peggy (No. 2 daughter) whose hus- 
band is a Navy Lt. (flier type). Sarah 
(our Salem daughter) is still working for 
the Welfare Dept. in Charlotte and loving 
it. I am off as of October 22 for another 
visit with Peggy in R. I." 

VIRGINIA BREAKELL LONG has a 
married son, Jim ... as of July 13. Jim 
is also a third year medical student. Dottie 
is at Longwood College and Nancy is in 
the ninth grade. Virginia and Ralph cele- 
brated their 25th wedding anniversary 
in May by going on a Bermuda Cruise. 
Ralph also tripped off to London in April 
and met some of Virginia's English kin. 

After years of no direct word, I was 
delighted to hear from ELLA WALKER 
HILL MITCHELL. Fred, her oldest son, 
has been married two years and his wife 
made Ella Walker a grandmother Nov. 
13th. She writes, "As soon as the holidays 
are over, I will be sewing and smocking 
for Kristin Mitchell. I am still working 
in the admissions office at Christopher 
Newport College and love it." 

Another "lost soul" has spoken! MARY 
ELIZABETH HATT BOX. She is "still 
active in all those civic duties. Our son, 
Jack (15), is quite a skier. He also has 
his own lobster business in the summer." 
Hatt had had a nice note this summer from 
NANCY COURT DENISE — one of her 
children is married — rest in college, and 
she's teaching part-time in local Community 
College. 

LOUISA SLOAN LEDBETTER was in 
Winston-Salem Thanksgiving week-end to 
attend the wedding of Lyell Glenn Hanes' 
daughter. She saw KATHERINE KING 
BAHNSON. Louisa also enjoyed BETSY 
HOBBY GLENN and Johnny this sum- 
mer. The Ledbetters daughter, Lockhart, 
is 16 and attends Stuart Hall. Their son, 
Jimmy, is 12 and at home. 

MARY VEN ROGERS YOCUM writes, 
"Last April, we made a trip to Salem to 
let Polly look. We had royal treatment and 
Polly loved it. I work in the Law Library 
at Univ. of Mich. Our oldest. Bill, is a 
senior and hopes to go on to graduate 
school if the army lets him. Rog is a 
Soph, at Mich. He is our all A man. This 
spring Conrad begins a leave of absence 
from Mich. We will spend some time at 
the Messaini Botanical Gardens and some 
time on the Olympic Peninsular in Wash- 
ington State." Right now Mary Ven has 
the measles. 

MARGARET WILSON — our doctor 
Willi — is alive and still in Raleigh. She 
says nothing but does send me a card 
every Christmas. 

It is always good to get JANE ALICE 
DILLING TODD'S Xmas letter. I always 
wonder how she has time to write with 
all the activities going on with them. 
Their son, John, married Patsy Martin of 
West Point, Virginia, on August 17. 
Jane will graduate from Agnes Scott in 



June and hopes to enter medical school 
next fall. They all hope Jim will graduate 
from the McCallie School in June, too. Jane 
Alice is working as an aide in South 
Gastonia School — halfday job which gives 
her some time for the volunteer work she 
enjoys. 

GRACE GILLESPIE BARNES expected 
to have a merry time Xmas with their three 
off at school coming home to enjoy the 
three children at home, including the baby 
of the class of 1940. Gracie wrote that she 
had "reunions during the year both with 
Frances and with PRATHER SISK 
STEWART, who now lives just outside^ of 
Richmond. She has changed very little." 

BETTY SANFORD CHAPIN'S daugh- 
ter, Jane, has been happily married for 
a year. Her son, Rob, commutes to college 
each day and Henry, her husband, is ailing 
but better. Sandy is doing some substitut- 
ing, teaching and working at church 
projects. 

ANN MEWBORNE FOSTER'S son, 
Robert, Jr., completed work for a Ph.D. 
in Nuclear Engineering at N. C. State 
in September. 

Nothing lets up here — not even the 
flu. Somebody has been sick in our house 
most of the time since the middle of 
December. Nobody has been seriously ill 
though, yet! In spite of poor health, we 
had a gay Christmas. My brother, Tom, 
spent about a week with us and my 
cousin, Sol, and his 5 year old spent a 
few days, too. Ray's mother is in a local 
nursing home since last summer when 
she had another stroke. Our oldest. Cherry 
(15), is in high school and tall as I am. 
Anne is in the eighth grade and won't cut 
her hair. Norfleet is in the sixth grade. He 
and Anne are both in A.T. sections. Nor- 
fleet plays for a Y-Lad Senior basketball 
team and I am a loyal fan. Ray has sur- 
vived us all — so far.

the piano and flute — choir and ukulele 
to horseback riding and water sports. I 
stay busy as a sort of coordinator for the 
above activities plus church and medical 
auxiliary work. Our chief family recrea- 
tion revolves around water activities. We 
plan a cruise next summer aboard our 
new boat, moored at Wrightsville Beach, 
N. C." 

SENORA LINDSEY CARROW writes: 
"I have no special news but would like 
to send to each of you many good wishes 
for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 
New Year!" 

A note from ELIZABETH YOUNG 
SALISBURY (Mrs. Paul L., Jr., 2754 
Lakeview Drive, Raleigh) reads, "Paul 
and I have four boys, so regret we will 
not have the privelege of sending one of 
ours to Salem. It always thrills me to help 
a friend with an application for her 
daughter. We are busy with our applica- 
tions to Davidson, Carolina and Wake 
Forest." 

LOIS WOOTEN JONES is teaching 
English at Grainger High School in Kins- 
ton and loves it. Her older son is a senior 
at Staunton Military Academy, and her 
youngster son is a junior at Grainger and 
very active in football and basketball. 

A bit of news from my household : 
Daughter, Jane, is a freshman at Sweet 
Briar College after summer of traveling 
in Europe and graduating from Ashley 
Hall, Charleston, S. C. Robert III, a 
junior high schooler and Tempie Ann, 
an 8th grader, Frank, a 5th grader and 
Baby Edward, 9 months, in the playpen. 
Husband, Bob, and I are busy with a 
summer house in Trent Basin at New 
Bern. So — on it goes. 
From the Alumnae Office: 

BETTY WITHERS MICKEY writes 
that her daughter Betsy is a freshman at 
the University of South Carolina taking 
a B.S. in Nursing; Molly, a junior in 
High School; Jimmy, in the 7th grade; 
the baby, Robert, an active 14 months 
old boy. Her husband is an engineer with

News, ladies, we do have news! Though 
I just found out I'm perilously close to 
missing the deadline. 



Miss Hixson forwarded a marvelous let- 
ter from ROSEMARY CLEVELAND 
BARSE. What a full, busy life she's lead- 
ing. She and her family moved last sum- 
mer from Springfield, Mass., to Oxon 
Hill, Maryland where she is teaching under- 
privileged country children in an afternoon 
kindergarten class. Both she and her hus- 
band have been working with Head Start. 
Along with this challenging work, Rose- 
mary is taking several courses in Early 
Childhood and applying for a Maryland 
Teaching Certificate for full-time teaching 
next year. Bill, her oldest son, is a fresh- 
man at Marietta College; Jim is finishing 
Jr. High, and Denise entered Junior High 
this year. 

I was overjoyed that GWEN MEN- 
DENHALL YOUNT took time out just 
before Christmas to write a long, newsy 
letter from West Palm Beach, Fla. She 
has been a social worker with county wel- 
fare for two years and says that Dr. Mc- 
Ewen's psychology course at Salem has 
stood her in good stead! 

Vacationing in Mexico City last sum- 
mer, Gwen was on the 12th floor of her 
hotel when that horrible earthquake struck. 
Her account was far worse, and far more 
vivid, than any newspaper account I read 
at the time. Her entire wing of the hotel 
swung like a pendulum for three minutes! 
Thank goodness she was unhurt except 
for losing her equilibrium for the next 
three days. 

Gwen's children are real "brains." 
Both maintain 3.6 averages in school. 
Gwen Anne, 20, is a journalism major at 
the University of Florida. Alex, 16, plays 
football as well as drums in a four-piece 
combo that practices, you guessed it, at 
Gwen's house. 

HENRIETTA WALTON McKENZIE 
says she and Bill have a life of ballgames, 
ballgames, ballgames, and they love it. 
Billy, 19, is a sophomore at Davidson. 
Tommy, 16, plays on the football, basket- 
ball, and golf teams in high school. John, 
in Junior High, plays football and basket- 
ball; and Michael, 7, is on the swimming 
team. Yea, McKenzies! 

TEAU COUNCIL COPPEDGE writes 
that the "busy" is just great, but there 
just isn't enough time. They all seem to 
be thriving on it, however, with college 
and career decisions hanging in the air 
this year. 

MARY HUNTER HACKNEY BRAME 
and Bill gave me one of my grandest gifts 
this Christmas — a long, chatty telephone 
call that caught us up with each other. 
They've postponed moving for a year to 
let young Will finish high school in Kin- 
ston. Bill (Choirmaster and Organist) and 
Mary Hunter (Organist) directed the St. 
Mary's Episcopal Church Choir in a per- 
formance of Cherubini's "Requiem in C 
Minor" last November. 

MARGARET WEST PAUL confesses to 
guilty conscience about it, but says she 
just doesn't have any news to report. 

SARA COE HUNSUCKER MAR- 
SHALL, Jim, three handsome boys, and 
two Collies still live in Hendersonville, 
but they aren't very communicative about 
it. 

SALLY BOSWELL COFFER'S children 
are lovelier each year, and I really shouldn't 
fuss about the lack of news, because this 
year there's another adorable daughter in 
their Christmas picture, the one born 
shortly before our last Reunion. 

To GRIZELLE ETHERIDGE HARRIS 
1 owe abject apologies. She wrote a delight- 



ful, glowing report of life with their new 
baby last Christmas. Please, Zelle, bring 
me up to date, and I promise to get dead- 
lines straight and report immediately. 

The oriental plague spent Christmas 
and New Year's with the Leas this year, 
and we barely managed to stagger through 
January. The saving grace was two teen- 
age drivers which I found to be the great- 
est invention since frozen food. 

Our big news is that MARTHA BOAT- 
WRIGHT CORR and Bill spent last 
week-end with us and dazzled everyone in 
Rocky Mount — she with two fur jackets. 
Bill with a wildly ruffled green shirt! 
They both stay busy with Decorr, their 
marvelous gift shop, and with the boys — 
Billy, 12, and Eddie, 9. 

HARRIET HALE PARKER has moved 
back home from Toyko, Japan, to Solitude 
Farm, Russellville, Tenn., and NELL Mc- 
MANUS SNYDER has moved into a new 
house in Taylors, S. C. 

COIT REDFERN LILES writes, "News 
from me is that as usual I have my fin- 
gers into too many pies — but enjoying 
every minute of it when I stop long enough 
to get my breath. The twins are in college 
this year — Joe III at N. C. State in 
Raleigh and Coit at Yale. Robbie is in 
the 10th grade here at home and Rosa- 
lind is in the 3rd. I have to adjust rapidly 
from talking to the 'sophisticated college 
freshman' to the Brownie Scout and this 
often leaves me in that state that mothers 
often find themselves of utter confusion." 

TICKA SENTER MORROW is alive 
and busy. Who knows more? 

And now, girls, I'm of? to start my 
Christmas thank you notes. But do re- 
member to keep those cards and letters 
coming in! 
From, the Alumnae Office: 

CARROLL BELL PHILLIPS writes that 
she has "Three college girls next fall! The 
oldest is now a junior at N. C. State 
and twin daughters, one who will attend 
N. C. State, the other will attend either 
Erskine or Brenau. There will be 3 at 
home — a son 14, a son 7, and a daugh- 
ter 2. I have one more chance to have a 
Salemite!" 

News has just come to our office of the 
tragic death in a hunting accident of 
MARGARET WEST PAUL'S sixteen-year- 
old son.

Happy New Year to all! 

How glad I was to receive your Christ- 
mas cards and notes. Thank you, and a 
double thank you to ANNE MILLS Mc- 
ROBERTS, whom many of us have not 
seen in 20 years. She writes — "Living 
in Florida is the most — especially for 
an ole' salt like me! The water is at our 
back door, and with 4 boys there's endless 
recreation." She says also that she's going 
to try to attend our 25th. Please do, 
"Mills "! We're all dying to see you again, 
and those of us with many daughters are 
anxious to hear all about your boys! 

MARILYN WATSON MASSEY'S two 
daughters visited their father in England 
last summer. They bought some clothes 
on Carnaby Street which, according to 

23 



Marilyn, are "actually wearable in Char- 
lotte"! Later in the summer Marilyn and 
the girls moved into a new apartment. 
Then Marilyn spent a few days in Puerto 
Rico. One of the daughters was elected 
co-captain of her girls' football team! 

ELAINE McNEELY LEIGHT'S Mary is 
a sophomore at Salem this year. Emily is 
in 10th grade, Elaine in 7th grade. Mama 
Elaine says all the teenage activities around 
her house are bringing on more gray hairs! 
PAGE DANIEL HILL'S oldest daugh- 
ter, Alice, wrote and directed the winning 
stunt for her sophomore class at Mere- 
dith's annual Stunt Night. Page also writes, 
"Rosaline (her youngest) is out of dia- 
pers and that makes life a little easier — 
however, she's a lot for this old mama!" 
CHRISTIME GRAY GALLAHER re- 
ports, "FRANCES VOGLER joined a 
group of us recently to bowl with our 
husbands. We had a hilarious time, as most 
of the boys had not bowled since high 
school. See MARGARET McIVER and 
MARY JANE McIVER occasionally as 
we all belong to the same bulb circle that 
raises money for Amos Cottage. I keep 
busy with bowling, polishing the brass in 
our old home, golfing and tending to the 
family. My husband and I are prep school 
"shopping" on weekends for our second 
son, David, who graduates from Summit 
this June. 'We'll be visiting colleges and 
universities with our oldest son next year." 
PEG BROADDUS DOUGLAS (Mrs. 
James E., 345 Somerset Drive, Athens, 
Ga.) writes, "Jim, my husband, and I 
are now graduate students at the Uni- 
versity of Georgia. He is working toward 
his Ph.D. in Forestry, and I am working 
toward my M.Ed, in elementary educa- 
tion and next year hope to work toward 
my '6th year' in 'Reading'. This will 
qualify me as a 'Reading Specialist'. My 
two boys, Dick, 13, 8th grade and Greg, 
11, 6th grade, are doing quite well in 
the Athens public schools. "The 4 of us 
have a contest to see who can bring home 
the best report card. It works wonders!" 

In December, MARY "WELLS BLINT- 
ING ANDREWS brought her daughter, 
Kathryn, and a friend to look over Salem. 
Kathryn is now a junior in high school. 
Of her stay in the Alumnae House Mary 
Wells said: "We have had the best time 
— just loved the atmosphere and being 
at Salem again." 

As for me, I stay busy with the usual 
things. Our oldest daughter, Salina, is in 
the eleventh year of the fifteen year pro- 
gram at the North Carolina School of the 
Deaf. She is Captain of her basketball 
team, and is fast becoming a well poised 
and grown-up young lady! Charlotte is 
m the 6th grade, Nancy in 3rd, and they 
are occupied with all the things eleven- 
year-olds and eight-year-olds like to do. 
Please let us hear of your families, ac- 
tivities, vocations, etc., so that there will 
be more news of '4Sers in the next Bulle- 
tin!

Our big news, of course, is that this 
is 1969. That means it has been twenty 
24 



years since we stood "... at the por- 
tals" in our unbelievably long skirts. (Re- 
view that senior annual! ) . How many of 
us will come back this year in our be- 
lievably short and mini-skirts? 

Christmas letters and cards, as usual, 
yield the news for the March Bulletin. 

MARGARET McCALL COPPLE reports 
in detail the activities of her family. Hus- 
band Lee has been professionally active 
consulting at Montreat-Anderson and Vir- 
ginia Intemont Colleges, reading a paper 
at the Southeastern Psychological Associa- 
tion, on a team-teaching panel for MAT 
at Emory, and involvement in the Atlanta 
Model Cities program. 

Margaret has completed basic nursing 
and has one quarter each in psychiatric 
and public health nursing before gradua- 
tion in June. 

Margaret's son. Dean, is in first year 
high school and doing well. Outside in- 
terests include a band he organized, the 
school marching band, Boy Scouts, a 
Youth for Christ group, and summer work 
in a variety store. Daughter, Mary, is be- 
coming an attractive young woman whose 
activities include Camp Fire Girls, church 
choir, swimming and fleeting contact with 
the flute and piano. Young David is in 
the second grade and is most active on 
his bike. 

An informative note from RUTH 
MABRY MAURICE tells of a month she 
and Joe spent in Europe touring nine 
countries and the cities of London, Paris, 
Copenhagen, Madrid, Rome, Dublin, Ge- 
neva, Frankfort, and Lisbon. She is teach- 
ing science in a completely integrated 
Junior High. Her son, Charles, is a high 
school freshman and daughter Martha Jo 
graduates this year. Salem is on Martha 
Jo's list of college applications. 

PEGGY GLEASON BERSANI'S Christ- 
mas card was a picture of her "little 
mafia" — Chris (2), Steve (5), Matt (10), 
Tom (12), Mike (13), Frank (14). She 
says there is need for a lot of diet, exer- 
cise and facials before the reunion. 

From the signatures on MARGERY 
CROWGEY KOOGLER'S card we know 
of children David, Mark, and Dana Rene, 
but not their current ages and activities. 

Another group which "clustered"' for 
Christmastime exhibition are Walter, 16 
(new driver's license), Harriet, 13, Mar- 
tha, 11, Coburn, 8 (Safety Patrol), and 
Toccoa, 3, who all beloni; to VIRGINIA 
COBURN POWELL, and "husband Walter. 
A fine looking group they are, too. 

From the grapevine (Elrod's, of course), 
I've learned that RUTH UNTIEDT HARE 
has moved from California back East to 
Alexandria, Va. 

"A New Hampshire Sweepstakes ticket 
has been purchased in the name of the 
class of '49 for Salem College, the gift of 
Francis and MARY PORTER EVANS 
SAVARD. Hope it's a winner! I have the 
ticket and the race will be run at Rock- 
ingham Park, Salem, N. H. on May 3rd." 
With beneficiary and location the same, 
how can we lose? What wonderful re- 
union news that would make. Mary Porter's 
husband"s seven grandchildren place me in 
second place (and as far as I know last 
place) with Stanley"s four grandsons. 

We are finally settled in our "accom- 
modations'" over Stanley"s new wine cellar. 
So maybe the area winos can congregate to 
discuss the 20th in more formal circum- 
stances than we did the 15th. See you in 
May at Salem!

I stay busy with teaching. Symphony

don't know what all, and I really like 
it that way! 

It's not too early to begin thinking about 
our 1970 reunion. Now that we're on" 
The Dewey system perhaps we'll have 
more incentive for all getting together — 
and including seeing friends from other 
classes who were at Salem when we were. 
BITTY DANIELS GRIESER writes to 
the Alumnae Office: "My husband and I 
are now in Florida after 18 moves with 
Western Electric Company. Don't know 
how Salem ever keeps up with us, but 
we've appreciated the Bulletin catching 
us in about every move. Last week while 
rounding up March of Dimes envelopes 
from our area, I discovered one of my 
recruits was RUTH DERRICK MELLOR, 
'52! A large chat followed, naturally, and 
she tells me MARY CAMPBELL CRAIG 
STROMIRE, "52, is just a few miles down 
Route 1 from us, so we plan a get-together. 
We also thought you might be able to 
furnish us with more names of Salemites 
in this area. — Cocoa, Titusville, or even 
Orlando. We"ll do our best to start a 
Florida Club if there are enough girls in 
the central east coast area. Cape Kennedy 
draws a lot of visitors, and we all recom- 
mend the Cape tour for all Florida visi- 
tors. The way Western Electric transfers 
us, we are probably 'just visiting" here, 
too, but we enjoy watching the Apollo 
shots out our back door — overlooking 
a pretty golf course. Hate to have all my 
Salem golf education go to waste, but it 
has — would rather garden and be lazy 
than hit the hot golf course here! Have 
been getting involved in Cub Scouts (Bill 
will be nine this month), AAVW, Re- 
publican Woman"s Club, fund drives and 
the usual bit. Titusville is now 35,000 — 
it was only 6,000 eight years ago, so volun- 
teers are always needed somewhere.'"

The Alumnae Office expresses deep appreciation to all 
class chairmen and to Winston-Salem volunteers for their 
cooperation in the present Alumnae Fund appeal. We 
hope an organized appeal, similar to the one this year, can 
be conducted annually.

sympathy goes to EMILY WARDEN 
KORNISH in the tragic death of her

Emily writes that she gets up at 4; 30

delivering papers. She is teaching in the 
same school that her children attend, and 
she even teaches one of her own children

one makes her lowest grades in math! 
That's our Emily! She also teaches sick 
children after school and does private

Fellowship in 1966-67. She has com- 
pleted her academic work toward an M.A. 
in Art and is now working on her thesis. 
Her paintings have been on exhibition 
in: N. C. Museum in Raleigh, other 
N. C. cities, Norfolk, Va., and ptivate 
collections. 

We have another artist in our midst 
and possibly others we haven't heard about! 

MAUREEN O'CRAWLEY RILEY 
writes from Jacksonville, Florida that she's 
had, "5 one-man shows this year plus 
being in half a dozen with other artists." 
Maureen and Clate have six children — all 
in school. Three of the kids are teenagers 
and Maureen says, "It's a jumping house 
with everyone involved in tennis, golf, and 
swimming teams!" 

Was so happy to receive some news 
from BETTY JEAN ("B. J.") SMITH 
TOLMAN, (Mrs. Milton H.). Please keep 
in touch, B. J., we've missed you! Her 
address is: 124 Brite Ave., Scarsdale, 
N. Y. 10583. She and Milt have a boy, 
14, and a girl, 12. B. J. is on the board 
of Scarsdale Woman's Club, Chairman of 
Public Affairs. She was appointed by Gov. 
Rockefeller to the boarci of Westfield 
Farms.

Also heard from SALLY ANNE 
KNIGHT SEABURY Christmas. She 
writes that she and Doug and 2 kids are 
happily settled in Houston. Doug grad- 
uated from U. of Texas Dental School, 
and they've been in Texas 12 years. 
They're the proud owners of a 34-foot 
houseboat, which they keep at the coast. 
They had Thanksgivine; Dinner with "The 
Bournes (MARGARET THOMAS '52). 
"We also have season theatre tickets, so 
Salem culture does prevail." 

EMMA LEE (KIT) SINCLAIR IN- 
GRAM writes from Decatur, Ga. It's a 
suburb of Atlanta. She and Hal and 3 
children have been there several years. 
They did have a "family airplane" but 
the kids got too large to fit in, so they 
had to sell it. Husband Hall was a pilot, 
remember? I hope to visit Kit and Hal if 
we ever get our kids down to see "Six 
Flags." 

Had a nice visit from "Chappie's" hus- 
band, Bob Sholtes, in September. "Chap- 
pie" (MISS MARGARET CHAPMAN) 
taught Physical Ed. at Salem in 1953 
and 1954. Bob is on the Faculty of U. 
of Florida at Gainesville and comes to 
Duke for conferences, seminars and comes 
by to visit. They have 4 children — 2 
boys and twins (boy and girl). They 
also have the "boating bug" in the form 
of a sailboat. 

Also had a nice visit from BETTY Mc- 
GLAUGHON ('54) in December. She's 
the same old "Boop," and she made me 
feel 15 years younger! She's moved back 
home to Kingsport, Tenn. and is work- 
ing for Eastman Kodak. 

MARILYN MOORE DAVIS writes, 
'"With three teen-age daughters and a 
ball-playing son, my days are wonderfully 
busy, but I am trying to keep up with 
music. I gave a piano recital December 6 
at our new Fine Arts Center and plan an- 
other one for the spring. All of our 
children are musical with two playing 
the flute, one the piano, and one sing- 
ing. So we make lots of noise at our 
house!" 

The rest of you "Laydies" best let me 
hear from you or I'll have to write about 
my cute children or what we're doing in 
"Brownies" and "Little League" or some- 
thing else equally as interesting. Hope all 
'53ers have a Happy '69er!

The holiday season brought welcome 
news from many of you, and I am de- 
lighted to pass it on. How about a note 
from some of the rest of you.^ The "lean" 
months are now upon your correspondent. 

A hearty welcome to a new daughter 
of PHYLLIS FORREST SINCLAIR and 
Jim. Name, Phyllis? 

JOAN SHOPE BENNETT sent a color- 
ful picture of her three children in a boat, 
and said that she and Mai had a trip to 
Jamaica last winter. 

NANCY ARNOTT CRAMER and Scott 
were anticipating a visit from the Jim 
Filers (DORIS McMILLAN) and Vernon 
Ferrells (SARAH SUE TISDALE) be-

fore Christmas. 

CYNTHIA MAY SPANN is finding 
enough time among her other activities 
to take art lessons. Her two sons are ap- 
proaching the teen years. 

A card sent to Salem gives ASTRID 
PARMELE GEORGE'S new address as 
5428 St. Charles Ave., Apt. B, New Or- 
leans, La. 70115. She is Mrs. Norman L. 
George. 

EDITH TESCH VAUGHN has been 
elected Secretary of the N. C. Synod's 
Christian Educator's Assoc. The organi- 
zation is composed of DCE's, ministers of 
education, and administrators belonging 
to the Moravian Church and the United 
Presbyterian Church. 

In September CONNIE WILLIFORD 
assumed her duties as librarian at the 
Shepard-Pruden Memorial Library in 
Edenton. Connie, a former classroom 
teacher, has worked previously as a li- 
brarian in the Charlotte and Norfolk, Va., 
school systems. 

Joe Jones wrote on a Christmas letter 
that his wife BETSY FORREST is now 
a stock broker! She took a training 
course last fall, passed both a federal and 
state examination, and became a fully 
licensed representative in November. Con- 
gratulations, Betsy, on your initiative and 
your ability. The Joneses have enjoyed 
camping on Cape Cod and skiing in New 
England. (Bob and I, along with many 
others, have taken to the slopes. As yet, 
we represent no threat to M. Killy.) 

PRIS HENRICH QUINN sent greet- 
mgs from the "frigid" north. She and 
Charlie had one month to make all the 
arrangements involved in a move, and 
accomplished same in September. Though 
she much prefers the warmth of Atlanta, 
Pris says they are settled happily in 
Poughkeepsie, N. Y. (Address: 7 Cora 
Lane, zip 12603). Charlie is an Ad- 
visory Planner in the Systems Development 
Division of IBM. They, too, enjoyed a 
trip to Jamaica last summer. 

Tom and JEAN HENRY LONG are 
in Lawrence, Kansas this year where Tom 
is a Visiting Associate Professor of Speech 
and Drama at the Univ. of Kansas. This 
summer they will return to Eagles Mere, 
Pa., for their fifth season of summer 
stock there. 

MOST IMPORTANT ITEM: Our 15th 
Reunion this spring! Please make your 
plans now to be with us at this time. 
It's much more fun if you are there. All

After calling the Alumnae Office last 
week and finding that Miss Byrd is now 
Acting Alumnae Director, I begin my 
classnotes with apprehension. It was de- 
lightful talking with Miss Byrd, but since 
my spelling and sentence structure are 
still far from good, this might end my 
twelve years as class correspondent. I told 
her to correct my mistakes and send 



them back! 

In October ANN LANG BLACKMON 
came from Birmingham to spend the day. 
I had BARBARA WHITE PEACOCK 
and JODY MOODY CLARK, '54 for 
lunch, while SARA HOBSON STOWERS, 
'54, stopped by later. Ann had had a very 
bad water skiing accident this past sum- 
mer, but thanks to a wonderful plastic 
surgeon, there are no scars. Her "before 
and after" pictures are priceless. I guess 
Ann was still trying for an AA letter she 
failed to earn at Salem. I just called Ann 
and they will be moving to Louisville, 
Ky., the middle of February. They have 
not found anything to buy, so will be 
renting a town house, 3812 Kingsbury 
Drive, Louisville, Ky. 40207 — until 
they buy or build. Bob will be manager of 
Rex Chainbelt's Carrier Plant. 

We had a delightful evening at Barbara 
and Ward Peacocks. Highlights of our 
"days in Bitting" were remembered. Ward 
and Barbara are very busy with church 
and community affairs. They spent some 
of the Christmas holidays in North Caro- 
lina. 

It was so good hearing from JEAN 
JENNINGS. She reports that she's "still 
single and traveling around quite a bit." 
Jean is with Eastern Air Lines, and sta- 
tioned in Fort Lauderdale, which she 
likes very much. From time to time she 
gets together with JOYCE BILLINGS 
WELCH and MARY BAMBALIS GAR- 
RETT, who also live there. 

JACKIE NIELSEN BRASHER writes 
that they are enjoying living in Switzer- 
land. They "have bought all the necessary 
ski gear and are waiting for ski slopes to 
open." Jackie is taking audio-visual French 
lessons, and having a "great time during 
coffee breaks, but suffering the two hours 
in class." To add to the confusion — she 
has a Spanish maid. Jackie had tagged 
along on a trip with Don "to Holland, 
through Germany and back through Bel- 
gium and Luxenbourg. Really was great, 
but not as pretty as Geneva." 

JANE LITTLE GIBSON reported that 
the Salem Alumnae Bazaar in Atlanta was 
a great success. MARGUERITE BLAN- 
TON YORK is doing a wonderful job as 
president of this group. The Yorks have 
recently bought a new home. Jane and 
Bob's Christmas card had an adorable pic- 
ture of the boys in their football uniforms, 
holding sister Jennifer, who was in a 
cheerleader's outfit. They looked like they 
were ready for Wake Forest and Salem. 

SARA OUTLAND DELOACHE said 
all the Burlington "Alumnae have really 
packed the Moravian cookies this Christ- 
mas — had good luck selling them too." 
She and ROSANNE WORTHINGTON 
PRUNEAU had seen one another in Kin- 
ston during Thanksgiving. Rosanne and 
John are getting ready to build a new 
home. They were in Boston and Maine 
last summer and "the children were really 
impressed with the city." 

CAROLYN WATLINGTON FAGAN 
and Roy "stay on the go with church, 
school. Boy Scouts (Roy) and all the 
things that keep you busy in small towns." 
Marguerite and Mike had been by to see 
them during the summer, and then they 
had all met at Myrtle Beach later on. 

Sad news from SUE JONES DAVIS — 
Mr. Jones died December 15th. He had 
been in an automobile accident earlier in 
December, but appeared to be getting 
along very well, and preparing to leave 
the hospital, when he had a heart attack. 



We extend our deepest sympathy to Sue. 
Mr. Jones was always a special favorite 
of our class. 

Sue said Roy is getting ready to build 
a new coffee plant on Highway 29, three 
miles south of Concord — and will 
"blow" as we go by. The Davis' Christ- 
mas card had a darling picture of Alan 
and Rhyne, who are in kindergarten now, 
and their dog "Coffee." 

JANE BROWN PRITCHARD is "still 
doing casework for the Welfare, and life 
has become more hectic than ever, with 
both children in school this year." She 
says, "their activities keep her as busy 
as her own." 

LOUISE FIKE is in Orlando. Florida, 
and is "Math Department Chairman" in 
the junior high school. She says it is a 
challenge, but rewarding. Louise's mother, 
Louise Woodard (1925) is "still trying 
to recover from her open heart surgery of 
two years ago" plus other ailments that 
have occurred. We join Louise and her 
sisters — in hoping that Mrs. Fike will 
soon be better. 

Word has been received from NANCY 
FLORENCE VAN KIRK that husband 
Ralph has been very sick, and has lost 
his eyesight. I'm sure Nancy would enjoy 
hearing from some of her Salem friends. 

BETTY LYNN WILSON ROBINSON 
has asked the following members of our 
class to help as class agents: BONNIE 
HALL STUART, NORMA HANKS GOS- 
LEN, GERTIE JOHNSON REVELLE, 
CAROLYN WATLINGTON FAGAN, 
ANNE EDWARDS, AUDREY LINDLEY 
NORWOOD. SUE JONES DAVIS and 
MARGUERITE BLANTON YORK — 
they are hoping "to report a big total at 
reunion. " We did very well last year, but 
I'm sure we can top that this year. 

Lynn and Phil were in Houston for 
a Home Builders meeting in January, and 
Lynn "ran into" PEGGY McCANLESS 
EFIRD, whose husband was attending the 
same meeting. 

I have talked with Lynn, and we are 
making plans for a big reunion weekend. 
It will be June 7th — so get those sitters 
lined up — shorten those skirts and lose 
those "few extra pounds." I will be send- 
ing a letter soon concerning dinner, motel, 
and the program at Salem. We will be 
looking forward to seeing all of you — 
let's start early on Friday evening and 
"try to stay going the whole weekend" — 
(Like we did during our college days.) 
I wonder if we can still do it? We 
will not have a reunion after this one, 
until 1974. Come join us at Salem — re- 
member the Alumnae Fund, and be real 
generous in your giving. See you in June.

Dear Girls of '56, 

Please excuse our vacant news spot in 
the last Alumnae Bulletin. I do have two 
very good excuses for missing the dead- 
line. First, Dennis McLawhorn Smith was 
born on September 6th, and second, I 
didn't have any news to send in about 
anybody but me, who had just had a baby. 



Dennis weighed in at 8 lbs. llV^ oz. — 
the 4th of four husky boys. Lee is now 
10 years in the 4th grade, Charlie is 9 
years in the 3rd grade, Robert is 5'/^ 
years in Kindergarten, and Dennis is 5 
months and in the "limelight" all the 
time. Since it looks like I've missed out 
on my Salemite girls, I'm depending on 
some of you "Salem sisters" to reserve 
your girls for my boys. 

Now I'll stop rambling and get to 
what little bit of news I do have, thanks 
to Christmas cards. 

NELLIE ANN BARROW EVERMAN 
has half as much trouble as I do. Her 
two boys are Dee, 3 years and David, 17 
months. Her husband has gone back to 
school, studying law in addition to hold- 
ing a regular job. She said she and Tem- 
ple were able to get to visit this past sum- 
mer, so I can imagine what a high time 
those two ex-roomies had with both their 
families together. Neither one thought the 
other had changed a bit in these past 12 
years. 

TEMPLE DANIEL PEARSON, Joe and 
their family spent this past summer in 
Oak Ridge, Tenn., where Joe works for 
Union Carbide, so that's how she got her 
visit at Nellie Ann's. 

BETTY JEAN CASH SMITH'S news 
was the same as mine except hers is a fu- 
ture Salemite. Julia Katherine was born 
October 11, and weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz. Her 
other two children are Steven, 8 years 
and Susan, 6 years. 

We have a change of address for LU 
HENLEY COBLE BRANSON. Her new 
one'is: Mrs. J. Clyde Branson, 806 Wood- 
brook Drive, Greensboro, N. C. 27410. 

DUFFY RUSSELL wants to know if all 
of us are planning to go to reunion this 
spring. I surely hope we have a good 
crowd. The "old lady" says health-wise 
she's doing better this year. Rest up now, 
Duff, so we can stay up all night talking 
when we do get to reunion! 

ELLA ANN LEE HOLDING sent me 
a lovely picture of her growing family 
of five. She stays busy, like most mothers 
of five do. She said they did build a 
house at Morehead this past summer, 
which they really enjoyed. Ella Ann has 
four darling little girls and one good look- 
ing boy, who is the oldest. Quite a lot 
to be proud of!! 

BETTY MORRISON JOHNSON writes, 
"Besides the continual activity of four 
children, I find time to be Troop Or- 
ganizer for the Girl Scouts in Dunn and 
the President of the Dunn Chapter for the 
North Carolina Symphony. I also sing 
in the church choir. The town had out- 
grown its hospital and its library, and we 
all have been working hard to get new 
facilities. Both buildings opened this fall! 
Children are; Lisa, 10 years; Morrison, 8 
years; Laura, 6 years and Allen, 4 years." 
JANE LANGSTON GRIFFIN'S ad- 
dress is: Mrs. Thomas N. Griffin, Jr., 175 
Lee Road, West Point, N. Y. 10996. 

ELEANOR WALTON NEAL, Bill, and 
girls are living in New Jersey now and 
really like it. New York City is not far 
and has furnished them many enjoyable 
trips to the Zoo and Museum of Natural 
History, etc. 

The long lost prodigal has finally been 
heard from, living in Salisbury. ANN 
CAMPBELL PRESCOTT, Jimmy, and 
ChiUun' will be there 'til next August. 
Jimmy got an internship at the V. A. 
Hospital, and after he finishes there he will 
have completed his Ph.D. Ann says she's 



not working (for salary, that is) but 
she's in the Choral Society, church choir. 
Music Club, PTA, Brownies (Pam) and 
children's choir (Pam, and Jim, III). 
Yep, most of us ma's know about all 
that, don't we? 

NANCY PROCTOR TURNER sent 
pictures of her growing family with her 
Christmas card — Mike, Melissa, and John. 
From her note Nancy seems to enjoy New 
Orleans with all its varied interests. 

Now, girls, let's all lose those extra 
pounds, get our new wardrobes or remake 
our oM ones, line up those baby sitters, 
and all head for Winston-Salem to reunion 
this spring. I hope we can have a good 
percentage of us back. So if nothing hap- 
pens, I'll see you all at Salem this spring. 

MITZI GREENE MALLONE was intro- 
duced as a new member of the Concord 
Alumnae group at a November tea. She 
is a lovely addition. Mitzi is married to 
Dr. J. Hugh Mallone, an internist, and 
lives at 206 Scenic Drive, N.E., in Con- 
cord. She is the organist at the First Pres- 
byterian Church. She and Hugh have 
two children.

The Class of 1957 has a reunion this 
year — that's right, in 1969. The new 
reunion plan is confusing, but perhaps it's 
set up to ease the approaching jolt of a 
15th Reunion. (12 does sound better.) 
Make plans now for returning this spring. 
Those of you who couldn't make the 1967 
reunion will have another opportunity to 
visit with classmates at Salem soon. 

NANCY GILCHRIST MILLEN wrote 
from a new address (23 W. Shore Road, 
Cornfield Point, Old Saybrook, Conn. 
06475); "Press and I and our thiee chil- 
dren are 'camping out' in a rented, furn- 
ished beach house until the house we 
are building is finished. We moved from 
Ho-Ho-Kus October 12 and really were 
sad to leave there. Perhaps we'll live there 
again some day. Some of the northern 
storms have nearly blown us off our sea 
cliff into Long Island Sound with winds 
of 90 miles an hour! Our future Salem- 
ite, Betsy, who is 2V2, recently was se- 
riously ill and in the hospital for a week. 
She is fine now and we are anxiously await- 
the completion of our new house." 

JEAN STONE CRAWFORD wrote 
from Greensboro that she and her sister- 
in-law opened a children's store "The Briar 
Patch" in March, 1967. All of you in 
the vicinity of Greensboro, do try to visit a 
shop that's bound to be a success with 
Jean, and "The Briar Patch" for a name. 
Jean asked about THRACE BAKER 
SHIRLEY. Thrace and I lock carts in the 
same A&P. She and Bob have a marve- 
lous, enormous house near Summit School 
where Bob is assistant to the Headmaster. 

JO SMITHERMAN DAWSON has 
moved to Austin Lane, not too far from 
my house. Jo is news editor for the local 
newspaper — Dirk is now with the North 
Carolina School of the Arts. Their five 
year old Dirk is adorable and a contempo- 

27 



rary of my son, Philip. 

MARY WALTON BIGGERS should be 
sending news of a new arrival that was 
due December 21. Homer has originated 
Biggers Construction Company and Mary 
says business is booming. Let us hear news 
of the baby, Mary. 

The following sent address changes:

Girls, I regret not getting any news in 
the last Bulletin, but you really have been 
remiss, too, in getting news to me. Truly 
I have had to dig for news. And digging 
is not as easy as it was when we lived 
in Winston-Salem. 

Sad news has just come to us. MARY 
HADLEY'S mother died on January 31. 
Our deep sympathy is certainly with all 
of the Pike girls. 

Many of us had wonderful visits to the 
Fikes' home. And these visits remain vivid 
in our memories. Dr. and Mrs. Fike con- 
tributed much to life. 

Johnny and I have been busy. Like so 
many, we had six weeks of Hong Kong 
flu and similar viruses recently. We did 
spend a lovely weekend at the Home- 
stead in January. Johnny won the trip. 
Would you believe that this was the 
third trip there that we have won.' 

Johnny has also become a part-time pro- 
fessor. He is teaching at Roanoke College 
this semester. 

ROLLIE and Ralph have had similar 
experiences with Hong Kong flu and 
related illnesses. In fact, despite many 
telephone calls, Rollie and I did not get 
to visit personally for over two months. 

The Adams have big news, too. They 
are expecting a baby in June. 

MARY ARCHER BLOUNT SIMPSON 
has had two moves since we last had 
word from her. Due to family illness, 
the Simpsons could not be with us at 
reunion. But Mary Archer wrote that they 
are already planning for "next time." 

Their new address is 1904 Sedgefield 
Drive, Kinston, N. C. 28501. 

Please send us more information, Mary 
Archer. What do you do? What about 
Sam? Extra activities, etc. 

BETSY SMITH MENEFEE wrote Rollie 
a great letter — shared with me for 
Bulletin benefit. Betsy and Sam moved 
on August 30 from Westport, Connecti- 
cut to near Lancaster, Pa. (I do not have 
the address. Please send it, Betsy.) 

Sam has been a pilot for Pan Am since 
he got out of the Navy 3% years ago. He 
is based in New York but flies frequently 
from Washington to Frankfurt. 

The Menefee children are Pam and 
Wyn (Sam, IV), eight and six. Pam 
IS m third grade. Wyn is a first grader. 
Betsy wrote that both children look like 
28 



Sam. 

She also told of a trip last Spring to 
Majorca and Lisbon. Although she liked 
both places, she loved Majorca — lots of 
fun." 

When summer comes, the Menefees will 
miss their daily trips to the beach in 
Connecticut. But this winter they are en- 
joying skating on the river just across the 
street from their home. 

MESCAL COE CONRAD and Ron 
have been at the University of Kansas for 
the Fall term. They returned to Satellite 
Beach, Florida in January. But they be- 
lieve another move may come in the 
Spring. 

NOLLNER and SMOKIE WATTS' 
third child, a son, was born in June. For- 
give me, but I cannot find NoUner's let- 
ter with all of the statistics. 

Rollie and I were in Lynchburg in the 
Fall and saw NoUner briefly. She was 
working at the Junior League's rummage 
sale, and we stopped to say "hello." Hope- 
fully, however, the Watts and the Bald- 
ridges will have a weekend together at a 
Bankers' Meeting in the Spring. 

DHU, we know your fourth child is 
here. But we need more information. 

MARY JANE GALLOWAY QUAT- 
TLEBAUM and David's son, John, was 
born in August. "He is a joy and has 
meant so much to the other children . . . 
and is old enough now to be an impor- 
tant part of this Christmas." 

More baby news; KAYE HANNAN 
PALIL and Jimmy are "expecting our 
fourth son." 

MIRIAM QUARLES FICKEN and 
Chuck are deliriously happy with their 
son, Charles David Ficken, Jr. David 
was born on August 16 and weighed 8 
lb. 15 02. Miriam wrote, "We moved to 
Charlotte in November. Chuck was trans- 
ferred by North Carolina National Bank, 
and we have taken an apartment while 
house-hunting. Their address is 4335-C 
Hathaway. The zip code; 28211. 

MARTHA JARVIS BUCK and Jim 
are expecting their fourth child — due 
in April. 

SARAH FORDHAM HARVEY and 
James announce the birth of a son, 
Stephen Burt, December 29. Can any of 
you remember a time when there was as 
much baby news? 

BARBARA PACE DOSTER wrote 
about great changes in their family. They 
moved to Winston-Salem on December 
27. Torn has opened a Shakey's Pizza 
Parlor. "We have bought a house on 
Archer Road, but as yet I do not know 
the house number." 

^ PEGGY INGRAM VOIGHT wrote, 
"Lanny returns from Da Nang on Sep- 
tember 4, 1969. He took surgery boards 
m Saigon on December 4. We'll meet in 
Tokyo on January 15 and in Hawaii later. 
Jim likes first grade, and Carol, at two, 
keeps me chasing after her." 

Peggy is in High Point while Lanny is 
serving in Viet Nam. 

CHRIS CLARK ROUNTREE is await- 
mg Lee's spring return from Viet Nam. 
This is his second Viet Nam tour. She 
hopes that he will become a civilian in 
the spring. 

Chrissy wrote, "Kristen is in 1st grade, 
and Will is trying to walk. So he is hardly 
a baby any more." The Rountrees are still 
in Jacksonville, N. C. 

CONNIE RHODES WEST wrote, "Ed 
is quite busy now with BankAmericard. 
Our bank is putting out the card for the 



state of Florida. Ed is in charge of the 
banks for the state. What a job! It keeps 
him busy traveling all over Florida . . . 
Conway is 4% and Edward is 2%. Conway 
goes to kindergarten every day which is 
a big help." 

LEA ALLEN JONES wrote from Ander- 
son, South Carolina, "We love Anderson 
and especially being settled. Can't believe 
after eleven years, we're finally permanent. 
But it was worth the struggle. We're all so 
happy." 

She also told of being in Asheville and 
trying to get in touch with Potts. But the 
Fowlers were away. 

NANCY WALKER MARCHAL and 
Eugene are still busy folks in Washington. 
On their Christmas card, Nancy wrote 
what a treat reunion had been. It truly 
was. All of us who shared that happy 
experience hope that every member of the 
Class of '58 will be at Salem for our next 
reunion. 

MARY DUNN McCOTTER ANDREWS 
sent me a picture of her sons. She wrote, 
"We have moved to another house and 
maybe are at last settled." Donald's com- 
pany has bought a plane, and the Andrews 
plan to fly to Roanoke in the Spring or 
Summer. What a leunion we will have. 
Mary Dunn needs your address, M. G. 
M. G. and KARL must have the most 
attractive family of us all. Martha and Jay 
Frank were in Miami for the Republican 
Convention and had dinner at the Bitters'. 
The Franks could not stop raving about 
M. G., Karl, and the children. 
Please send news, M. G. 
We watched television carefully for a 
glimpse of Martha and Jay at the Inaugu- 
ration. (Jay was on national television at 
the Convention.) But we never saw them. 
We do want details of your participation 
in the historic event. 

SUE DAVIS SOBEL wrote that she 

and Sonny had planned a trip to Roanoke 

this Fall. Their trip was naturally called 

off after Sue suffered a miscarriage. 

The Sobels are still in Kingsport 

JUDY ANDERSON BARRETT wrote 

to Rolhe. She keeps very busy. In addition 

to being wife and mother of three, she is 

involved in many, many other activities. 

Word via my mother-in-law is that 

LYNN BLALOCK HEMINGWAY and 

George know where they are moving when 

they leave Chapel Hill. But still we have 

not heard from Lynn. Please let your 

friends hear about you 

MARY JO WYNN LOFTIN, '59, has 
become a Roanoker. It is almost absurd 
that there are so many Salem girls from 
our generation here. 

Louten Hedgepeth has been promoted to 
State Manager of his company. JEANE is 
once more a full-time homemaker. The 
Hedgepeths have had two recent ttips to 
Dallas. Jeane is a skiing enthusiast, too 

DIANNE BYERS BUTTON and Ralph 
have a new address at Pt. Mugu Calif 
1960 Hawk Drive. 

I am awaiting news from you. Rather 
than have good intentions for later, sit 
down now and send me at least a card. 
From the Alumnae Office: 

A clipping sent to us from the Jackson- 
ville, Florida Times Union has a picture of 
ANIS IRA DALY with a Moravian star 
which she saw for the first time as a 
freshman at Salem. Anis is quoted as 
saying: "I remember arriving for my 
Christmas vacation with a Moravian star 
clutched in one hand and the other hand 
full of Moravian cookies. I have been en- 



tranced with the many-pointed Moravian 
star for the past 14 years." Anis says her 
Alumnae Group has made the stars avail- 
able for Jacksonville residents. 

MALIN EHINGER TYLLERED writes 
from Sweden that: "We now have a house 
of our own in the outskirts of Lund, 5 
rooms and kitchen and a garden of about 
1,000 square yards to take care of . . . 
I don't know yet when I'll go back to 
school work . . . there are problems in 
caring for the children now that there are 
two of them . . . not easy to find good 
domestic help these days."

I speak for the class in extending 
sympathy to LUCINDA OLIVER DEN- 
TON. Her mother, Mary Robbins Oliver 
died on October 28, 1968. She was a 
member of the class of 1926 at Salem. 

My thanks to those of you who included 
notes on your Christmas cards. I surely 
was counting on you! Here's what you had 
to say — 



a GESTEU/JD 




BE or 

GOOD 



from Mathew, the son of Jean Smither- 
man G est eland, '59- 

ANN BRINSON HENSEL and Dick 
are looking forward to the arrival of little 
Hensel number three in March. Ann has 
been busy lately trying to find out what 
the various members of the class would 
like to do come reunion time, so I hope 
you answered her inquiry. It is just great 
to have an enthusiastic member of the 
class right there in 'Winston-Salem doing 
all the dirty work! 

I don't think this bit of good news came 
in time for the last Bulletin, so here it is 
now. MARGARET FLETCHER KLEBER 
and John adopted little Kathryn Elizabeth, 
born on August 7, 1968, in the Fall. They 
call her Katie and Margaret says that she 
is mighty cute. Make note of their new 
address too — 710 Lundall Avenue, Rock- 
ford, 111. 61107. 



And way down Florida way, a move 
takes BETSY GILMOUR HYDE, Hal and 
the three girls to 749 17th Avenue, N.E., 
St. Petersburg, Fla. 33704. Betsy says that 
they have purchased their first home and 
it is an older one which they are having 
fun fixing up. Hal is now minister of 
■Woodlawn Presbyterian Church in St. 
Petersburg. 

MARY JANE MAYHEW BURNS, 
■Woody and little 'Woody have moved to 
4 Oakwood Drive, Chapel Hill, N. C. 

I ran into JANE ROSTAN McBRYDE 
and Angus at one of the Davidson basket- 
ball games in January. She said that before 
long Angus will be working for a year 
at the Orthopedic Hospital in Greenville. 
Jane looked just grand — says that she 
has been working part-time with three 
year olds. 

MARTHA DUVALL PRYOR and Ned's 
new address is Apollolaan 127, Amsterdam, 
Netherlands. Martha, we'd love a letter 
from you! 

Looks like ELIZABETH SMITH MILL- 
ER is trying to get a corner on the market! 
They now "have four girls — the newest 
arrival being named Mary Catherine Cooke 
Miller. The" Millers live at 3259 Somerset 
Street, S.'W., Roanoke, Va. 24014. 

SUE COOPER HUFFMAN just can't 
stay out of the classroom! She is now 
teaching sophomore literature part-time at 
Lenoir' Rhyne. She says that she enjoys 
it and is looking forward to the reunion 
in June. 

Sounds like MARGARET MacQUEEN 
GRAYSON has things in good shape now. 
She has all of her children in school! Time 
doesn't really fly that fast. Margaret sends 
them when they are 2'/2! 

I wish that the rest of you would get 
as inspired as MERI'WETHER "WALKER 
CLEMENT does upon occasion. This time 
it was three pages worth. Here's my con- 
densation: Elizabeth is now six and in 
school at Enfield Academy, a private school 
now in its fourth year. Husband, Tudge, 
serves on the Board of Trustees. 'Walter 
will be five in Tune and Meriwether is 
three. Judge is still farming and the family 
hopes to move to the country before the 
children are all grown. Meriwether hopes 
to get to the reunion, but says, "I 
haven't been up to Salem since 1958 and 
I feel so intimidated bv traffic — I'm 
just a simple country girl! And love it!" 

I hope that a lot of us can get back to 
Salem this June. Remember, we will have 
a class meeting and if you aren't there we 
just might elect you the next president!

It always comes as a special sorrow and 
shock when we lose our first classmate in 
death — and it has happened. Susan passed 
away in the fullest flush of womanhood, 
wifehood, and motherhood — and our 
tears fall for her husband, her little sons, 
and her parents. And what more can we 
say. 

Funeral services for SUSAN DEARE 
KNOTT, wife of Robert N. "W. Knott, 
were conducted at 11:00, Monday, Decem- 
ber 9, at the Episcopal Church of the 



Good Shepherd, Asheboro. Burial was in 
Oaklawn Cemetery. 

Susan died Saturday, December 7, in 
Duke Hospital, Durham, where she had 
been a patient for a week, following some 
six months of illness. 

In addition to her husband she is sur- 
vived by two sons — Robert N. "W. Knott, 
Jr., and Steven P. Knott; her parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. Frank Deare of Greensboro; and 
three brothers, Joseph Deare of Memphis, 
Tenn., John and Frank Deare, both of 
Greensboro. 

I have received some inquiries about 
starting a memorial fund in her name, and 
I'd like to hear from you. 

I received Christmas greetings from 
BELLE HARKRADER FINOCCHIO, 
Forest Hill, N. Y. 

A note on ROSEMARY LANEY 
CRO'W'S card from AsheviUe disclosed 
that Jerry has gone into private practice. 
He joined a three-man trial firm. Rosemary 
is directing a church choir and teaching 
four piano students. They went to Florida 
for New Year's and stayed with NANCY 
LOMAX MANK and Layton. 

I enjoyed hearing from NANCY JANE 
CARROLL. She is teaching music in the 
"Wilson City Schools — her second year 
— and plans to stay one more. Her address 
is 402 North Carolina Avenue, 'Wilson, 
N. C. 

Not too often have I received a wedding 
invitation from France, so it was with 
great interest that I called upon my high 
school French to figure out that CATHER- 
INE RECAMIER was married Saturday, 
October 26, to Mr. Louis Lacassagne in the 
Church Saint-Medard, Paris. As well as I 
could decipher, we weren't invited to the 
reception, girls. 'Wouldn't that be a lovely 
trip! Best wishes, Catherine. 

And best wishes to ANNE CATLETTE, 
who is now Mrs. Karl S. Foster and lives 
at 615 Reno Street, New Cumberland, Pa. 
17070. 

Congratulations to John and SUSAN 
McCOTTER FOX, who announce the birth 
of James 'Walton Fox, second child and 
first son, 8 lbs. 3 oz., on January 17. 
Give him a squeeze for us, Susan. 

I had a lovely visit with MERIBETH 
BUNCH after Christmas, when she came 
to Winston-Salem with her parents to 
visit her sister. Meribeth is on the faculty 
of the Univ. of Southern Calif., teaching 
in the Anatomy Dept. of the Dental School 
and in the Music Dept. An interesting 
combination! She can diagram great vocal 
cords. She especially enjoys the "outdoor

come expert at tennis.

A note from SALLY TOWNSEND 
HART (Mrs. John S.), "Our second son,

This brings our total to two."

I recently received terribly shocking 
news, and I am certain the entire class 
will join with me in sincerest expressions 
of sorrow to her mother and to Oval Boone 
and his son James Lansford Boone in the 
tragic death of wife and mother, NANCY 
CASSIDY BOONE. Nancy, who was with 
us our Freshman year only, was killed in 
an automobile accident in November of 
last year. 

During Christmas I received a letter 
from DOROTHY STARLING FAISON'S 
mother. It was a pleasure to hear from her 
and we appreciate finding out about 
Dorothy's family. She was married in July, 
1962, to F. J. Faison, Jr., Sonny, and is 
living in Clinton, N. C. Sonny and Dorothy 
have two sons, F. J., Ill, 4 years; Plato 
Starling Faison, 2 years. Dorothy teaches 
first grade, and Sonny is comptroller of 
Vann Industries in Clinton. 

A Christmas card from ANN BUTLER 
JONES brought more news of the farm 
she and Jerry bought — busy, busy, but 
with time left for showing dogs and attend- 
ing antique auctions. 

ELAINE FALLS visited in Raleigh at the 
end of the year with SALLY WOOD 
CREECH, but I didn't get to see her. She 
is teaching in Atlanta — what's your 
address, gal? 

BARBARA HEEDEN is working in

address? 

MATILDA WOODARD GOLD plans 
to take a group of high school students 
to Europe this summer. Let us know more 
about your trip, Matilda. 

HARRIET TOMLINSON HILL told me 
that DOT FRICK HYATT and Max are 
expecting their second child in June. Any- 
one else have great expectations? 

The Fall was a busy time for the pro- 
duction staff of our class! Six new models 
appeared on the assembly line — three of 
each. NAN HIGDON HARRISON and 
Fred had a girl to arrive August 2, 1968, 
but Nan failed to tell us the name of 
little Miss Harrison. 

September 20 found the arrival of 
Sarah Margaret Reed, daughter of SALLY 
GILLESPIE REED and John. 

The next day, September 21, David 
Christian Kratt, son of CYNTHIA HYATT 
KRATT and Ted appeared on the scene in 
Durham. 

CAROLYN McCLOUD THOMAS and 
Pete, announced the unveiling of the 
October 1st model, Peter Glynn Thomas 
Jr. 

The latest aviator to fly in was Miss 
Lynn Marie Hooker; pilot and co-pilot are 
Jim and JOANNE DOREMUS HOOKER. 
The 1969 New Year's Day baby was 
none other than Laurence Faison Wood 
Creech, son of SALLY WOOD CREECH 
and Bill. Congratulations to all these folks 
on the additions. 

Several address changes came to my 
attention recently: 

EMILY STONE OWEN and Charles 
now live in Decatur, Ga. 300.33 — 1511 
Delia Drive. Charles is on "the faculty of 
psychiatry department of Emory University 
Medical School, where he is a psychiatric 
30 



social worker. He also does informal teach- 
ing of counseling techniques to residents 
and medical students," wrote Emily on her 
Christmas card. Emily is "enjoying some 
of the social activities of Emory Woman's 
Club, such as bridge, book circulation 
group, and meeting lots of nice people."

and Tom, 2128 Malvern Road, Charlotte 
28207. 

DOTTY THOMPSON WHITLOCK and 
Dwight, 4 Fernlawn Street, Redwood 
Forest, Asheville 28805. 

I find FLICKY CRAIG HUGHES' 
letters fascinating. See Miss Byrd's article. 
Around the World — and Back, for de- 
tails on Flicky's activities. She aroused my 
interest so much in one of the books she 
likes, Doman, Teach Your Baby to Read, 
that I have purchased his book and am 
astounded with the many possibilities right 
at our fingertips. Flicky, we shall await 
publication of yout book. Do let us know 
when it will be available in the States. 

Time to put up the writing-typer for 
this issue. It's been fun to visit with you 
— how 'bout putting me on the receiving 
end of your news real soon. There are 
many of us who wonder about you 
we'll never know unless you tell us, ya 
know! 

By the way, the Browns will have "new 
model" to announce come late August. 
Bye for now!

are busy with jobs or homes and children 
— in some cases both — but surely you 
have a minute to drop me a card. It is

First of all I apologize for some of this

REED and Bill, who have a daughter,

MARTIN CONKLIN, who lives in Atlanta 
where her husband is in Grad. School. 
They had a son, Jim Frederick Conklin 
in May, 1968. My apologies, Ann, I had 
misplaced your letter! 

The essence from my notes and cards . . . 

AVA ANN CAMP SEVERANCE and 
Jim have moved to Kansas City, Mo., 
where Jim is a research scientist with Booz, 
Allen and Hamilton. New address is 3505 
N.E., 67 Terrace — 64119. You're getting 
closer Ava Ann! She wrote me about her 
tfip to Salem last summer and was im- 
pressed but a little saddened with the 
many changes there. Her sister, Linda, is 
now a senior and is one half of Melas II! 

The Smiths (BECKY BOSWELL and 
Bob) are all fine. Becky says she barely 
has time for the evening paper between 
Bruce and Beth. How is it on rainy days? 

The Vickers (JANE RAYNOR, Larry 
and Lance ) have bought a home in Atlanta 
(580 Pine Forest Road) and enjoyed their 
first Christmas in it. 

In the "House Crowd" with the Vickers 
are the CRAVERS who have bought in 
Winston-Salem. I talked with JANE 
KELLY in December and they were 
anxious to move in January. The new 
address is 1050 Vernon Avenue. 

Also moved are VIRGINIA ANDER- 



SON BASINGER and Marshall, to 855 
Museum Drive in Charlotte. 

Congratulations to the following: 

GINGER WARD COHEN and Harold 
had a daughter, Elizabeth Ann, born Nov. 
25. 

MARSHA RAY RASH and Dennis 
adopted a daughter, Margaret Mebane, last 
summer. She is now almost a year old 
and by Christmas had "5 teeth, walks 
around the furniture and eats Christmas 
tree limbs! She is the joy of our lives." 

G. G. SAUNDERS BUXTON and Bucky 
have a second daughter, Lisa (Elizabeth 
Heath), born Oct. 4. Bucky is finishing 
a first year medical residency at Vandy and 
they will be going in the service this sum- 
mer. 

JACKIE BAKER MORTON and her 
two redheaded sons, Duncan III and Peck 
(Robert Peck) are living in Charlotte 
(4114 N. Providence Rd. 28211) while 
Duncan is on duty in Vietnam. Jackie says 
they've bought a recorder and trade tapes 
but look forward to a reunion in Hawaii 
in March. Meanwhile I'm sure those two 
boys will keep you busy. We all wish you 
a "fast" year. 

MARTHA STILL SMITH and Don have 
moved to Raleigh and their new address 
is 211-B Shellbrook Dr., 27609. 

I had a busy winter between books and 
baby but really enjoyed my course at 
Hunter. I'd forgotten how frenzied the 
academic scene is! Apparently there's some- 
thing in the water as our son, Frank, is a 
redhead too and pretty sassy for 15 months! 
We took him to the parade for the astro- 
nauts and he promptly fell asleep — 
hardly the acceptable behavior! 

Please let me know what you are up to. 
As I recall my last threat to make up some 
news brought speedy results so perhaps 
I'll use it again. Also try to find a place 
in your budget for a gift to Salem this 
fall. As you probably know it's not the 
amount but the percentage of alumnae 
that give that determines gifts from founda- 
tions.

Now I know how the Hollywood gossip 
columnists feel. You hear lots of juicy 
tidbits, but deciphering truth from fiction 
is another journalistic matter. 

You all must be surprised to see me 
writing the class notes; so am I. It all 
happened shortly before Christmas when 
ROBIN CAUSEY CLARK dashed off to 
join Dallas at Quantico. Robin felt that she 
would be changing addresses so often that 
the correspondence would be lost. What a 
splendid job she has done keeping all the 
girls in touch! Let's all hope she will re- 
sume her duties when she and Dallas are 
finally settled. Her present address is 
3627 Fairview Lane, Dale City; Wood- 
bridge, Virginia 22191. 

Stork news heads the list of major ac- 
complishments of the Class of '65. 

BETH MOORE BRINSON is so proud 
of herself. Benjamin Asher, Jr., weighing 
7 lbs, 2 ozs., was born December 31. If 
you want to congratulate Beth and Ben, 
St., they live at 616 Forest Acres Drive, 
Tarboro, N. C. 

Hugh McKee Nunnally II, born Novem- 
ber 14, 1968, "has his parents thoro-'shly 
under control," writes SALLY DAY NUN- 
NALLY. All thtee live at 200 Franklin 
Road, N.E., T-2, Atlanta, Georgia 30305. 

NANCY ROUZER MAY and John have 
a beautiful baby girl, Caroline Mallory. 
Prior to Mallory's birth in late August, 
you should have seen Nancy; she was 
actually chubby. Their address is 300 
Country Club Drive, Greensboro, N. C. 

KAY ASCOUGH SMITH writes that 
she is "enjoying her new home in Martins- 
ville and loves the responsibility of taking 
care of her new baby boy." 

MYRTIE MOON BILBRO DAVIS, 
whom I see frequently, and her husband. 
Bill, have a new home in Winston-Salem 
at 844 Westover Ave. They are eagerly 
awaiting the arrival of their first child 
about the middle of February. 

Also expecting a child in the spring is 
MARY GRAVES EDMUNDSON. M^ary, 
husband, Jim, and daughter, Virginia. live 
at 3106 Lawndale Drive, Apt. C, Greens- 
boro, N. C. 27408. 

Darling blonde Katherine Holt was 
pictured on KITTY TRASK'S Christmas 
card. From what I understand, Kitty and 
Ed ate having a fantastic life in Charles- 
ton, S. C. By the time this news is publish- 
ed, Katherine should have a baby brother 
or sister. The Holts live at 74 Church 



Street. 

Frank Vogler IV, came to my Jays 
first birthday party and is he ever hand- 
some — a perfect combination of Mom 
JULIA MILEY and Pop Gene. The Voglers 
are doing fine; Gene is now Vice-President 
of Voglers & Sons and Julia is doing some 
modeling and raising a rare breed of dogs, 
Tibetan Terriers. They all live at 2512 
Woodbine Road, Winston-Salem, N. C. 

Julia told me some news about several 
of our lost classmates. One of them was 
ZAN LaROQUE FREDRICKS. Zan and 
her husband, Donnie, have two children 
and live at 507 Greenbrier Drive, Golds- 
boro. Julia says that Donnie and his 
brothers compose a singing group which 
has been entertaining the troops in Viet- 
nam. 

Another of Julia's contacts was LISA 
RANKIN, who has had a most exciting 
life since graduation. Lisa presently is living 
at 18-E, 94th Street, Apt. 4-b, New York, 
New York, and is a guide for the New 
York Stock Exchange. What fun! We 
would all like to hear more about Lisa's 
worldly travels. 

BONNIE HEMRICK TENNILLE, who 
lives in Winston at 153 Lawndale Drive, 
has a son, Wilson, Jr., 2'/2 years, and a 
daughter, Cassandra, 15 months. Bonnie's 
husband, Wilson, is the buyer and manager 
of Bocock-Stroud; he is the best dressed 
man in town. Bonnie still corresponds 
with two of our favorite transfers — 
LYNN EVERETTE HALL and FLORIDE 
WILLIAMS WILLIARD. 

Lynn and her husband, Frank, have one 
son, Ken, I'/z years, and live at 103 
Elkahatchee Street, Alexander City, Ala. 

Reports are that Floride and William 
WiUiard are having a fun fun time living 
in Spartanburg, S. C. William is working 
in his family business. Their address is 
617 Woodland Street. Thinking of Floride 
reminds me of PARMA LANE and SALLY 
SMART. I wonder what they are doing? 

NANCY GARDNER writes that she 
married Alan J. Druskin, an investment 
broker, last year. She is teaching Latin in 
high school. The Druskins live at 3127 S. 
Highway 100, Apt. 3, St. Louis Park,

ate School at University of Maryland, and 
were also offered half-time teaching assist- 
antships to support ourselves." She enjoyed 
furnishing her apartment with the help 
of BEVERLY BUTLER. 

PAIVI KOIVISTOINEN writes that 
"Scandinavia has student upheavals just 
like all over in Europe. This fall, Helsinki 
University was 100 years old and both 
police and hospital were alarmed, because 
some radicals occupied one of the Univer- 
sity buildings (a la Sorbonne') ... In 
general, however, the whole procedure went 
calmly, as it usually does in Finland. We 
are no great rebellors . . . Last summer I 
spent in Lubeck, northern Germany, and 
had a really enjoyable time as a guide 
and tourist hostess . . . I'll be taking my 
B.A. this spring . . . slowly starting with 
my master's thesis."

DIANE MORTON'S plans for her up- 
and-coming betrothal to Lee Fentress on 
March 1 are presently occupying all of her 
time, so she has presented me all of the 



marriage and baby news to relate to all 
of you. Not only has she left me single 
and "roommateless", but with topics I 
know nothing about! 

Single life is still lots of fun and re- 
warding, as JEANNIE BARNES will agree. 
We are looking forward to being brides- 
maids in Diane's wedding, and find a 
single girl's life in Washington just as 
much fun as ever! 

Wedding bells are still for the class of 
'66. 

MARY DAMERON'S marriage to 
ZELLE HOLDERNESS' brother, Haywood, 
on December 29, was quite an exciting 
affair attended by quite a few of our 
classmates, including ANN WILSON, who 
was a bridesmaid. Unfortunately, a minor 
tragedy occurred on their honeymoon at 
Hound Ears when Mary broke her leg at- 
tempting to tackle the slopes. Hope you 
are hobbling right along to complete re- 
covery in Richmond, Mary! 

HAPPY PRICE left the single-girl ranks 
on January 30, when she and Ross Holmes 
were married in Spartanburg, S. C. Please 
let us know all about your wedding and 
where you and Ross are living, Happy. 

Also on the list of newlyweds is CARO- 
LINE MILLER, who was married to Jay 
V. Strong, Jr., on Saturday, August 31, in 
Asheboro. They are presently settled at 
1010 25th Street in Washington, D. C. 

SYLVIA WALL changed her name last 
August to Mrs. Ulrich Klaus Wesche. She 
and Ulrich are presently living in Chapel 
Hill, where they are both teaching lan- 
guages at the University. Their summer 
plans include a trip to Ulrich's home in 
Germany. 

I understand that CAROL ANN WEISS 
was married last month (January), but 
unfortunately don't have the details. Please 
let us know so your new name can be 
included in the next Bulletin. Carol Ann. 
MARGARET YOUNG has changed both 
her name and address. She and her hus- 
band, James P. Anderson, Jr., are living 
at 1718 College Street in Columbia, S. C. 
29201. 

IT'S DEFINITELY A BABY YEAR 
FOR THE CLASS OF •66\ 

JANET and CRAWLEY MILLS and 
Freddie are the proud parents of a new 
little girl, Julia Bryson (Julie), born on 
December 24. Julie was presented to Jan 
on Christmas day in a stocking — Santa 
was certainly good to you and Freddie 
this year, Jan! 

It's a boy for SARA and Louis Bissette! 
Who else should arrive on February 8, 
but a Winston Louis, Jr. Louie is still 
smoking cigars and grinning from ear-to- 
ear! 

BETTY MORRISON EDWARDS is full 
of exciting news. She and Bee Be built a 
new home in Greenville, S. C, and had 
just moved in when their first tenant 
arrived — a baby boy ("Tripp"), born 
on October 17! I am sure that Bee Be is 
beside himself with his new namesake. 

BECKY RUSSELL FERRELL and her 
husband, Ralph, are settled in a new house 
in Greensboro, where Becky, as chairman 
of the Moravian cookie sale, spent many 
long hours initiating her kitchen. The last 
we heard from Becky she was expecting a 
baby in mid-January, so I assume she is 
now playing the role of a busy mother. 
Let us hear all about it, Becky! 

CATHIE ODOM HITE should be either 
in the hospital by now or on the way! 
She and Johnny are still in Norfolk and 
expecting a baby any minute. Please fill 

33 



us in on the scoop, Cathie — boy or girl? 
June 16 is the date circled on JEANNIE 
RENICK DAVIS' calendar. As she says, 
"I am joining the crowd and becoming 
a Mama". She and Johnny are building a 
new house in Asheville and they are both 
bubbling with excitement. 

LINDA TUNSTALL DILLON and 
Clark will be returning from Okinawa in 
March — only two months before their 
first baby is expected in May. Needless 
to say, they are ecstatic about these two 
big events. 

SUSIE MATERNE BENSON, how many 
did the doctor say you are going to have.' 
Taylor swears it's going to be a litter, and 
from the looks of things I don't doubt it! 
Susie and Taylor were in 'Washington last 
month for a second honeymoon and we 
had a great visit. Susie has been in charge 
of the class agents in the Annual Giving 
Program and as usual, is doing a wonderful 
job. She reports that the Salem Tea held 
in Richmond during December was a 
tremendous success. 

I have heard through the grapevine that 
GRETCHEN 'WAMPLER 'WELCH and 
JEAN KING PARSONS are both expect- 
ing spring babies. That's keeping right with 
the class spirit, girls! Let us hear all about 
it. 

JANE CRUTCHFIELD and her hus- 
band, John, prefer travel to babies! Jane is 
presently employed with Eastern Airlines 
in Utiiversity City, Missouri, where John 
is finishing up his last year of graduate 
school at 'Washington University. 

QUINCY STEWART PARSONS writes 
that her time is completely occupied by 
23 children — 22 first-graders and her 
husband! She loves her teaching job in 
Trenton, and writes that it has been quite 
a rewarding experience. 

JAN DULIN SURRATT and her hus- 
band, Alex, are settled in "Wilson, where 
Jan is teaching. I'm looking forward to 
seeing them in "Washington at Diane's 
wedding. 

MARY DAVENPORT NELSON and 
Kmloch are still in Richmond, but not 
for long. They will be leaving soon for 
Iowa, where Kinloch will continue his 
study of medicine. I will see you two at 
Diane's wedding, won't I.' 

There isn't much more news from the 
smgle girls, but then I guess there aren't 
many of us left! 

SALLY SPRINGER is working for the 
Extension Service as Foods and Nutrition 
Specialist. She does quite a lot of traveling 
over Texas — "a big state to see." 

BARBARA MALLARD wrote from New 
Bern, where she spent Christmas with her 
family, that she is teaching in Asheboro 
and thoroughly enjoying it. 

DOTTIE GIRLING is having the time 
of her life in Denmark, where she is 
teaching English part-time in a Danish 
"gymnasium" and taking classes at the 
University in Copenhagen. Miss Byrd saw 
Dottie last summer on the Connecticut 
shore while Dottie was in the U. S. visiting 
her family. She was very excited and happy 
about her return to Denmark. 

It's not easy to keep track of ANN 
WILSON these days! She is presently in 
Atlanta, where she is working and having 
a great time. 

GINGER KINNAIRD has moved ftom 
Ohio to Raleigh, where her address is 
815-C Daniels Street 27605. We would 
love to hear what you have been up to. 
Ginger.

hear the stories they will bring back. 
Jeannie Barnes and I do miss our lunch

your' news. 

PAIVI, our Finnish friend, writes that 
she has worked with a large shipping com- 
pany — a job which she thoroughly en- 
joyed. It did sound most interesting in her

returns to the University. Paivi, many 
thanks for keeping us up on your news. 
Good luck to you. Her address is: Paivi — 
Mirjami Koivistoinen, Honkavaava A-15, 
Viherlaakso, Finland. 

Girls, thanks to all the "old faithfuls" 
who write me regularly. As for the others, 
please keep in touch. We would love to 
know what all of you are doing. Also, I 
am sure you realized that our class was not 
listed as one to have a reunion in June. 
But, from conversation with several '67ers, 
I have gathered that many of us would 
like to plan a reunion anyway. I have 
checked with the Alumnae Office and this 
is possible. They will have to have a num- 
ber of those planning to attend from our 
class by the end of April. So — what 
do you think? PLEASE let me know your 
ideas about a reunion and if you wish to 
be included. Write me a card SOON and 
I will take care of all plans if we decide 
to reunite. I really think it sounds great. 
Also our sister class graduates in June and 
it would be nice for us to be there for 
that. Let me know — SOON! 

Wallace and I continue to be well and 
happy. I'm doing weekly volunteer work 
at Caswell Training School (a school for 
mentally retarded children) and enjoying 
that. Nursery school is still fine — and 
I'm doing lots of sewing. That's about all 
for now — keep in touch — Oh, I almost 
forgot — a special thank you to all of you 
who agreed to help me with the Alumnae 
Fund Drive. You will hear from me again 
soon. Remember, class, support your Alma 
Mater with your gifts when you are con- 



tacted. We want '67 to show up high in 

the statistics. 

From the Alumnae Office: 

CHERYL CRANFILL HITE, now living 
in Newark, Delaware, writes that she is 
thrilled with the Salem rocker her mother 
sent for Christmas. She says: "We re- 
arranged the whole living room to show it 
off. My only problem now is getting my 
husband out of it so I can use it!"

'68'ers are still middle-aisling it, and I 
have recently received news of several 
summer weddings.

Schweppe were married in July and are 
now living in Washington, Pa., where

BETSY PAYNE and her family in the 
death of her mother last November. Betsy 
is living at home, 408 School House Lane, 
Wayne, Pa. 19087. 

I received a very informative letter from 
PEACHY BYARS BEARD (Mrs. John, 
Jr.), who is teaching French and English 
at two schools near Athens, Ga. She gradu- 
ated from the University of Georgia and 
was married July 27. Five days later John 
left for his basic training with the National 
Guard, so Peachy "batched" it for six 
months. John plans to finish his Master's 
and Peachy plans to start hers after she 
gets John through. Good luck! They are at 
329 Dearing St., Apt. 143, Athens, Ga. 
30601. 

Another ex, CILLA TAYLOR FON- 
SECA, writes of her graduation from LSU 
and her marriage to Ramon Fonseca 
("Spanish name but he's all-American"). 
They live in Hammond, La., where Cilia 
is teaching second grade, and Ramon is 
working toward his degree in veterinary 
medicine. 

On the basis of a spur of the moment 
decision, KATHIE CARPENTER landed 
in Boston, where she is a foreign language 
center co-ordinator at Meadowbrook Jr. 
High School in Newton, Mass. She's room- 
ing with an Agnes Scottie, but she has 
refrained from singing "Would You Love 
Me Any Better". By this time Kathie may 
have earned a degree from Harvard! Her 
address is 59 Colborne Rd., Apt. 4, Brigh- 

35 



ton, Mass. 

PAM JORDAN STALLINGS and Barry_ 
are living in Rocky Mount, N. C, where 
Pam teaches five classes of ninth grade 
Physical Science at R. M. Wilson Jr. High, 
and Barry attends Wesleyan College. To 
Pam, the real thing is an improvement 
over student teaching. 

JANE RICH HINES (Mrs. Sherman E., 
Jr., 203 W. Newlyn St., Greensboro, 
N. C.) v?rites, "I'm teaching tenth grade 
English at Page High School and am 
spending every possible moment learning 
to teach and be a wife at the same time." 

Pam's old roomie PAIGE BISHOP 
MANGUM should be in Maine by now 
if Bill's orders came through as scheduled. 
If so, their address is 48 Hannessey Ave.,

Bates College, Lewiston, Maine. They have

ing Katharine Gibbs, taking a one-year 
course in executive secretarial training. Her

101, Marlborough St., Boston, Mass.

school music in five elementary schools in 
Laurinburg, where she has an apartment

HELEN SMITH IRVIN (Mrs. Frank 
James, 3822-A Country Club Road, Win- 
ston-Salem) is a graduate of UNC-G in 
nursing and has worked in the operating 
room at Forsyth Hospital in Winston, and 
is now employed by Dr. Robert Odom. 
Her husband teaches fifth grade in David- 
son County and plans eventually to enter 
the field of guidance and counseling. 

Unofficially, the record-setter of our 
class, as far as children are concerned, is 
■DOLLY STRUM BARTON, who has tu'o 
children. Dolly is in California, and Jon 
is overseas. 

RANDY CHASTAIN CARPENTER is 
living in New Orleans, where she teaches 
Jr. High American History. Jerry is in 
grad school at Tulane. Randy also writes 
that CAROL WEEKS and KATHY 
SIMCHES are living in Boston. She does 
not say what they are doing, only that 
they are living it up! She also reminded 
me that DONNA VAN DYCK MOSE- 
LEY and Danny are expecting a "wee" one 
sometime soon. I say that just how 
"wee" it will be remains to be seen! 
Randy's address: 527 Henry Clay Ave. 

Another Salemite made the European 
scene last summer and part of the win- 
ter. CONNIE NEWELL traveled in eight 
countries and then landed a job with an 
advertising bureau in Paris. She is eager 
to return and hopes to get a permanent 
job in Paris. If this falls through, she 
will probably go to New York with BETH 
RHEIN. Meanwhile, she is scheduled for 
the dentist's chair. Her home address is 
North Edgehill Ct., Peoria, Illinois 61604. 

BETH TAYLOR WHITE and Tom are 
living in Winston-Salem, 2021 Elizabeth 
Ave. 27103, where Tom is in med school 
at Bowman Gray and Beth is working for 
ye olde Journal and Sentinel. She wrote 
at length about the new Old Salem Tavern 
Dining Rooms. Seems she managed to 
wangle a free meal for women of the 
press, and therefore had a good oppor- 
tunity to sample the goodies. She recom- 
mends the tap beer and the cabbage salad. 
Beth, you'll not go far as a newspaper wo- 

36 



man unless your typing improves. Her typ- 
ing is about as hard to decipher as Don- 
na's handwriting! 

And poor old CONNIE SORENSEN. 
Bless her heart, nothing ever goes right 
with her. Her key word for 1969 is 
LIVE, and the first day she tried to rise 
above the Plain Jane Connie Ann image, 
she had a rotten lunch of dead hambur- 
ger and grease, slammed her head in the 
car door, and slipped in the mud and slid 
into the lake at Tanglewood trying to 
feed the ducks. I'll bet the ducks were as 
surprised as Connie! 

1 have several changes of address: 
LISA MABLEY has moved to No. 8, 
Snow's Apt., 5003 Bethania Station Road, 
Winston-Salem 27106. 

SALLIE CRAIG TUTON and SHARON 
MAURICE are in Atlanta at 1185 Collier 
Road, N.W., Apt. 27-H, Atlanta, Ga. 
30318. 

RANDY GAWTHROP SAWYER is 
living in Nashville, Tenn., 407 Bowling 
Ave. 37205. 

I also have snatches of info about sev- 
eral classmates. CAROL FREEMAN is 
still teaching in a government project in 
Greensboro, but she is afraid that the 
change of administration in Washington 
may affect her. 

FRANCES McNINCH is in graduate 
school in Library Science at Emory, as is 
NANCY JOHNSON. Woe be to the 
library! 

SUSAN JONES, who was 23!! years 
old on her last birthday, is making the 
social scene at Virginia Beach, and man- 
aging to sandwich in a few hours of teach- 
ing 7th grade at Malibu Jr. High. She 
and MARY HOBSON FARR are still liv- 
ing together at 6306 Atlantic Ave. 23451. 

HELEN BEST has managed to snare a 
job with Senator Hale Boggs, but only 
after pounding Capitol Hill from October 
until Christmas. Good luck, Helen 

SARAH LYNNE COBB and Ed Greg- 
ory are hearing wedding bells for Feb- 
ruary 15 and will live in Raleigh, where 
Sarah Lynne is employed by the News and 
Observer. 

LINDA LEIGH MOORE is working 
as a research assistant under Dr. D. Ber- 
nard Amos in the Division of Immunolo- 
gy at Duke Medical Center. She and 
PEGGY McPHERSON share an apart- 
ment at 624 LaSalle Street, Apt. 5-H, 
Durham, N. C. 

BUMPY McIVER, piano maestro of 
the metropolis of Sanford, is giving private 
piano lessons and is organist for the 
Episcopal Church. She has recently pur- 
chased a numerous supply of pots and 
pans, so if you happen that way, drop 
by for a gourmet dish. Her olives rolled 
in cheese are especially good. 

Speaking of eating, I am dining with 
PATSY MATHEWS REYNOLDS to- 
morrow night, so this may be the last 
column you get from me. The last time I 
ate out there . . . Oh, I won't go into that 
now! 

By the way, if any of you Salemites in 
Germany know where BETSY BARNES 
MIXSON (Mrs. J. F., Ill) is, please clue 
me in. I received a letter mailed from 
Jacksonville, Fla. written on Sea Island sta- 
tionery, with an APO return address, and 
two pages written about her plans to join 
her husband who is in service. She lives 
on a post with its own ski slope and in 
a two-story house with five bedrooms and 
its own wine cellar. With all this room, 
she hopes to see many Salem girls! How- 



ever, she fails to mention the town!! Her 
APO address is 05355592, 731st Gen- 
eral Dispensary, APO New York 10173. 

That's about all for now, except to 
say that I am still at Carolina. Please keep 
the letters and cards coming. I really ap- 
preciate all the help I can get. Oh, yes, 
didn't I hear that ANN HAAS was in 
one of those underdeveloped African na- 
tions trying to speed everyone up? 
From the Alumnae Office: 

EVA DREXLER enjoyed two months' 
travel through the United States, Canada, 
and Mexico City last summer. She writes: 
"I always was overwhelmed by the bigness 
of the areas I traveled through, especially 
the West . . . But especially I enjoyed the 
year at Salem College . . . there are no 
words existing which could express my 
thankfulness. My stay and study in Salem 
College was the most fascinating and re- 
warding experience I have had in my life. 
My studies in English and in Education 
gave me a good picture of American edu- 
cation, and my language improvement will 
be most helpful for my teaching in Secon- 
dary School next year . . . But the most 
wonderful experience I had was the kind- 
ness and friendship everybody in Salem 
College gave to me . . . One thing I would 
like to promise — the ambassador I have 
tried to be at Salem for Austria, I shall 
be in my country for the United States 
and especially for Salem College." 



NOTICE:

SALEM COLLEGE BULLETIN 



August, 1969 



Volume XI, Number 9 




Dr. Gramley, in a letter on June 26 to the 
Board of Directors of the Alumnae Association, said: 

The new Director of Alumnae Affairs 
is Mary Lucy Hudgens Bivins, '66, who 
moved to the nearby community last Sep- 
tember when her husband became Curator 
of Crafts for Old Salem, Inc. She was a star 
in Pierrette productions at Salem through- 
out her undergraduate days; she has had 
professional stage experience; she has been 
a writer for radio (in Raleigh); and until 
June 30 continues as an editor for Western 
Electric Company . . . She is young but ade- 
quately experienced. She is alert and per- 
sonable. You will be attracted to her and 
helpful to her, I know . . . She comes to her 
new post upon recommendation of Miss 
Byrd, Dean Hixson, "yours truly," and 
others on campus who know her . . . Miss 
Byrd will work with her during the month 
of July. 

Mary Lucy has exemplified in college and in her career an invaluable qualification 
for the position: the ability to fill and keep in perspective many roles at the same time. 
On the morning after taking the lead as Madam Rosepettle in Ob Dad, Poor Dad, she 
appeared in class bright-eyed and vivacious, eager to discuss the subject assigned. In 
New York after graduation she studied, acted, and held a full-time job simultaneously. 
She has continued in Raleigh and in Winston-Salem to combine successfully several 
careers at the same time. 

Of her role in Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author, a critic wrote: 
"The honors for a more volatile portrayal belong to Mary Lucy . . . She gave a bal- 
anced characterization, neither too emotional nor too matter-of-fact." 

The Alumnae Association has been in search of, not an author for six characters 
like Pirandello, but a director combining sixty-characters-in-one person. I turn the 
Alumnae work over to Mary Lucy, confident that she can play all sixty roles in a 
balanced fashion, confident that you will give her the enthusiastic support you have 
given me. —Jess Byrd 

COVER 

Doris Cozart Schaum, '19, and her daughter, Doris Schaum Walston, '44, shared the 
stage on Alumnae Day. Doris, Sr. spoke for the Golden Anniversary class; Doris, Jr. 
spoke for the Silver.

TWENTY YEARS TODAY 



"TWENTY YEARS TODAY," a surprise musical- 
comedy given at the Alumnae Meeting, celebrated, on a 
light note, Dr. Gramley's 20th Anniversary as President. 
The comedy, a melange of film, tape, slides, and live actors, 
was created by a clandestine committee, including Director 
Mary Homrighous, Esther Mock, Jess Byrd, Mary Lucy 
Hudgens Bivins, Lisa Mabley, Connie Sorensen, and Beth 
Taylor White. The show followed a delightful program of 
songs by the Melas II, Dee Dee Geraty and Linda Camp. 
Dee Dee, Linda, and Beth White then served as narrators 
for the surprise celebration. 

Live actors dramatized the event twenty years ago 
when Dr. Gramley became the first President of Salem 



College to be inaugurated. Stars of this scene were many 
of the faculty members, complete with Academic regalia, 
who participated in that unprecedented occasion in 1950. 

From that official beginning, slides and tape then 
highlighted Dr. Gramley's contributions in the last twenty 
years to the city and to the College. Film sequences spoofed 
some of his hobbies and his campus "problems." Special 
guest star for the film sequences was Hugh Gramley. Re- 
markably like his father, his portrayal of Dr. Gramley as 
a "Jack of All Trades" delighted everyone. 

In the finale all the Alumnae present joined in the 
singing of a special Anniversary song. 



DORIS McMillan eller 

HEADS ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION 



Our new president comes to the 
office with excellent training for the 
position, as her efficient planning and 
execution of the activities of Alumnae 
Day showed. In her four years as 2nd 
vice-president and a member of the 
Executive Committee, she has been 
active in the affairs of the whole As- 
sociation. Her work in coordinating 
the joint activities of students and 
alumnae has been outstanding. She also 
served as president of the local Win- 
ston-Salem Club in 1964-65. 

After her graduation from Salem in 
1954 with a degree in home econom- 
ics, Doris taught in the Raleigh City 
Schools and at Salem Academy. 

She now leads a busy life in Win- 
ston-Salem as wife, mother, civic lead- 
er, and career craftsman. Wife of 
James Eller and mother of a young 
daughter, Elaine McMillan Eller, she 




is a member of St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church, has served as co-chairman of 
the Mental Health Benefit Auction and 



as a State Officer of the Daughters of 
the American Colonists. She is also 
an active member of the Junior 
League. In between these duties she 
designs lamp shades for her custom 
made lamp shop. 

Maybe the reason Doris can man- 
age so many activities without ever 
getting ruffled or ceasing to smile is 
that she gets proper relaxation: she is 
an enthusiastic golfer. The Alumnae 
Association is again fortunate to have 
an efficient and experienced leader. 

Other officers of the Alumnae As- 
sociation for 1969-70 are: 1st vice- 
president, Ernestine Thies Wall, '31; 
2nd vice-president, Mary Oettinger 
Booe, '61; Secretary, Jane Harris Arm- 
field, '31. Serving another year will be 
Treasurer, Peggy Witherington Hester, 
'46, and Chairman of Nominations, 
Cortlandt Preston Creech, '35.

NEW TRUSTEES RECOGNIZED 



Three new trustees were recognized at the meeting 
on Alumnae Day: Mary Louise McClung Edwards, '38; 
Elizabeth Pfohl Campbell, '23; and Margaret McLean 
Shepherd, '35. 

They were elected in the spring by mail ballot, in 
accordance with the action taken in November by the 
Synod of the Moravian Church doubling Alumnae rep- 
resentation on the Board of Trustees and doubling the 
length of their terms. 




Mary Louise 
Edwards 



Mary Louise Edwards was 
elected to the Board for a 
term of six years. As retir- 
ing president of the Alumnae Association, she knows well 
the affairs of the Association and the College. She has 
worked closely with the Alumnae Office and the Executive 
Board. Through attendance at district meetings in the 
state she has met many Alumnae. As chairman of the 
Alumnae Committee in Salem's second 10-year self -study 
report for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, 
she is learning what alumnae from the classes of 1962-1968 
think of their Alma Mater. 

She is Mrs. J. Roger Edwards of High Point, N. C, 
a busy wife and mother, a member of the Junior League 
and an active civic leader in her community. 




Elizabeth Pfohl 
Campbell 



Elizabeth Pfohl Campbell 
was elected to the Board 
for a term of five years. 



Daughter of Mrs. J. K. Pfohl and the late Bishop Pfohl of 
the Moravian Church, she was for many years a next door 
neighbor of the college. After graduation from Salem 
she earned an M.A. from Columbia University and served 
as dean at Moravian College for Women and at Mary 
Baldwin College. 

She now lives in Arlington, Va., where in addition 
to being the wife of Edmund D. Campbell, and the mother 
of four children, she has been active in civic and national 
affairs. She has served as a member of the Arlington 
County School Board, National Citizens Committee for 
Public TV, and National Association for Educational 
Broadcasters. She was Regional Chairman of the Virginia 
Mental Retardation Planning Committeee. 

Some of the many honors bestowed on Elizabeth are: 
election to Who's Who of American Women, Who's Who 
in American Education, McCall's Golden Mike, American 
Women in Radio and TV. 




Margaret McLean 
Shepherd 



Margaret McLean Shep- 
herd was elected to serve 
a term of four years on the 
board. She is a graduate of both the Academy and the 
College, where she was Alumnae Director. She is the 
wife of Walter Scott Shepherd of Lumberton, N. C, and 
the mother of three children, one of whom, daughter 
Martha, is an alumnae of Salem Academy and College. 

Margaret is active in work with the Alumnae As- 
sociation, the church and community. She has served as 
District and Area Chairman for the Alumnae, as President 
of Women of the First Presbyterian Church, Vice-Presi- 
dent of Women of Fayetteville Presbytery, member of the 
General Council of Presbyterian Church of the U. S., and 
President of Southeastern General Hospital Guild. 

Terms of the present Alumnae trustee have been ex- 
tended as follows: Elizabeth Hendrick, '40 until 1970; 
Margaret Newland, '19 until 1971; and Judge Mary 
Gaither Whitener, '49 until 1972. 



Twenty-One Return for 

GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY 



DORIS COZART SCHAUM SPEAKS 
FOR CLASS OF 1919 

The Class of 1919 was fortunate to enter Salem before 
the days of Entrance Exams and College Boards, otherwise 
some of us might not have been admitted. We had 31 
members who graduated. It grieves me to say that seven 
of that number have passed away. Dr. Howard E. Rond- 
thaler was our beloved President. Student Government was 
inaugurated our first year. Despite the shadow of World 
War I, our years at Salem were very happy ones. No class 
could have been closer or more congenial. We were blessed 
with an unusually fine faculty that we knew loved and 
understood us. In the religious atmosphere that has always 
characterized Salem they taught us fundamental values — 
the love of God and our fellowman; the meaning of 
service and dedication; the courage to face life. We will 
always cherish their memory and be grateful that they 
guided our feet in right paths. 

Today the class would like to present a gift to Salem 
as a tangible expression of our love and loyalty. The credit 
for this gift is largely due to the enthusiasm and efforts 
of our Fund Chairman, Lelia Graham Marsh. (Many of you 
knew Lelia Graham during the years that she served so 
efficiently as our Alumnae Secretary). As our Golden Gift 
to Salem, the Class of 1919 presents the sum of $5,000. It 
means a great deal to us to be able to make this gift be- 
cause it will enable us to feel that, though long absetit 
from the campus, we can still have a small part in Salem's 
future. 



To the Class of 1969 we extend congratulations and 
very best wishes. We know that Salem has equipped you 
well to assume places of leadership in your community 
and in your church. We are living in a challenging world. 
Never before in our history has there been a greater 
need for strong, dedicated Christian men and women. As 
you leave these hallowed walls, we would say to you as was 
said to the man who stood at the gate of the New Year, 
"Go out into the world and put your hand in the hand of 
God. It will be better than a light and safer than a known 
way." God bless you everyone and make your lives a force 
for good wherever you go. 

SALEM REVISITED FIFTY YEARS AFTER 

Eunice Hunt Swasey 

How does it feel to be a fifty-year graduate? In the 
first place, one must never admit to feeling old. In the 
second place, one must expect and welcome changes at 
Salem as well as in the world around us. We came back 
with mixed feelings, of course. But we found an amazingly 
close-knit class loyally dedicated still to the eternal values 
upon which Salem was founded almost two hundred years 
ago. 

We had delved deep into our own pockets and some- 
times into the pockets of husbands and sons to reach the 
goal set for us by our fund chairman. We felt a justifiable 
pride in Doris Cozart Schaum's report for the Class of 
1919, and were thrilled that her daughter, Doris Schaum 
Walston, could represent the Silver Anniversary Class on 
the same platform. We admired 1969's graduating class. 







Salem's largest, and one of the finest looking groups any- 
where. 

Students Dee Dee Geraty and Linda Camp sang sev- 
eral charming numbers accompanied by the guitar and 
tambourine. Dr. Gramley gave us a most encouraging re- 
port of new working relationships developed between 
faculty and students over the twenty years of his presi- 
dency. And we enjoyed the delightful account of his hob- 
bies and projects as they were presented in pictures and 
song. 

The class meeting was attended by twenty-one; the 
dinner in the evening arranged by Maggie Mae Stockton 
beside the pool at the Country Club gathered twenty to- 
gether to reminisce and discover the interests and ac- 
tivities of those we seldom see. We missed those who 
could not join us but it was an altogether heart-warming 
day, and one long to be remembered. I am also very sure 
that the campus at Salem on June 7th, 1969 was one of 
the most beautiful and peaceful spots in our country. 

May God continue to use Salem for His glory!

Maggie Mae Stockton says: "I have enjoyed all 
contacts with so many of our wonderful class — some I 
have not seen in a long time. Ralph and I are leaving 
in June for a long thought-of trip to the West Coast. 
Please be as responsive to our new correspondent as you 
have to me." 

1919 sends love and sympathy to Mary Lancaster 
Broaddus in the loss of her husband a few months ago. 
We missed Mary and Martha McKellar Reynolds at 
reunion. 

On our Golden Anniversary the weather and our 
spirits matched the day. 

Walking into the Fine Arts Center for the Alumnae 
Meeting, DoRis Cozart Schaum, Marjorie Davis 
Armstrong, Mag Newland and I ran into our classmate 
Eva Logan, as tiny as ever. Soon, one who used to be 
"little" Bertha Shelton (but is now Mrs. Rai Alexan- 
der) recognized us. 

The crowd began to enlarge, as the Lexington girls 
came in — Mary Raper, Mabel Claire Brown, with 
Carolyn Hackney Edwards of Clemson, S. C, who will 
soon be touring the Greek islands. These three left after 
our class meeting because Maty takes cate of her ninety- 
three year old Mother. 



Also, to be traveling soon will be Maina Vogler, but 
would not say where. MARGARET Newland is planning 
another out of the country trip, having invested in a new 
car just recently. 

On hand to help their wives with a good time was 
Farrell White and Loam Markert. Farrell brought Frances 
Ridenhour and Loam brought Gladys Richard. "Frank" 
had pictures of a new granddaughter, while Gladys could 
be the first to have a great-grandchild. 

Mary Edwards Rose told us of her granddaughter 
accepted for the freshman class at Salem in the fall. She 
is the daughter of Dr. L Woodall Rose of Raleigh. Mary 
has two other sons, one in Rocky Mount and the other at 
Wrightsville Beach, where Mary spends each July. She 
often sees Sarah Lily Dockery Henry from Lumber- 
ton, while there. Leora Hooker West came with Mary, 
the first attendance in a long time. Leora's daughter and 
two grandchildren live in Virginia. Leora's sister Mary 
Hooker Taylor of Greensboro, died last summer, to the 
sorrow of us all. 

Teaching music for thirty-seven years in the Winston- 
Salem Public Schools, but now retired is RUTH SHORE. 
Not only giving of her talents to school children, she 
cared for her father so well he lived to be one hundred 
and two. 

Any time you visit the Salem Restorations, look for 
Emily Vaughn Kapp — conducting tours and giving 
historical data, which she keeps at her fingertips. 

Not seen among us for a long time was Faye Huntley 
Ives, who is now living in an apartment in Winston-Sa- 
lem. Her son. Bill, lives in Durham with his wife, Nell 
Pell Watt, and is with Hanes Corporation. 

Currently doing work at a Branch Library outside of 
Richmond in McLainsville, Va., is Eunice Hunt Swasey 
hoping to take the month of July off to tour Canada. 

In a camp near Hendersonville as dietitian for a few 
weeks is Mary McPhail Davis McGregor. Her daugh- 
ter Eleanor is moving to Tucson, Arizona with her profes- 
sor husband and two little girls. One son lives in Green- 
ville with Mac, while the other son is in the Forestry Re- 
search Department at Clemson University. He and his wife 
have two daughters and a son. 

Wires came from Marion Hines Robbins and Ina 
Mae Lee, saying they hated to miss the gtand occasion. 

Our gratitude goes to Lelia Graham Marsh for 
her challenge to us; her work for us in raising the wonder- 
ful S5,000 gift to Salem. Lelia Gtaham writes: 

We are proud of the 41 members out of 53 who 
gave $4,452 and we bless the two husbands who 
supplied the S548 necessary to reach our $5,000 
Goal! My gratitude to the fund agents whose good 
work brought such fine results. 

Maggie Mae engineered our happy times week-end 
with assistance from Virginia Wiggins Horton and 
Elizabeth Conrad Ogburn, The three husbands, Ralph, 
Ham, and Ralph, made an invaluable trio for special en- 
tertainment for visiting husbands. Many thanks.

SILVER 

ANNIVERSARY 

for Class of 1944 

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF 

Doris Schaum Walston 



I had no idea, when I stood up to speak in behalf of 
my graduating class at Alumnae Day in June, 1944, that 
I would return 25 years later to do the same thing! At 
that time I was asked to appear as one of the seniors in 
a Mother-Daughter exchange because my mother was hav- 
ing her 25th Reunion. 

I'm living proof that history does repeat itself because 
here I am today, representing my class at Alumnae Day — 
and here to represent the 50th year class — my mother! 

It hardly seems possible that our four years at Salem 
were so long ago. Why it just seems like yesterday that we 
were complaining about gas rationing and those long bus 
trips home. There was a serious man-power shortage, we 
thought, because there was no Wake Forest here then, 
and the gas rationing didn't get the boys past Woman's 
College. We were writing V-mail letters to boys we knew 
in the service overseas and taking before breakfast walks 
to the P. O. in pitch black dark because of Wartime Day- 
light Saving Time — a double setting-back of the clock! 
We were living through "our war" then, and it's really 
unbelievable to see it condensed into one chapter in our 
children's text books. But time marches on! 

Those were happy days we spent here at Salem in 
spite of the war, and the passing years have brought their 
joys and their sorrows, too. 

Some of our classmates have married — some have 
not. All are successful in their chosen professions, whether 
it be teacher, business woman, wife or mother. 

Some have traveled far and wide — either through 
pleasure or work. Classmates are now living in Guam, 
Hawaii, and Turkey, and three are leaving this weekend 
for summer trips to Europe. 

Our children vary in age from twenty-five among the 
non-graduates and twenty-three among the graduates to 
two and one-half, and we even have several grandchildren 
represented! I do believe seven children in one family is 
our record, but there are several classmates who have five. 

Two members of our class have daughters who are 
graduating tomorrow: Craig Carmichael and Lelia Sulli- 
van. I would like for these two mothers and their daugh- 
ters to stand. We welcome Joan Elder and Marnie Prevost 
and all the other members of the class of 1969 into the 
Alumnae Association, and we will be looking forward to 
seeing you again when we come back to our 50th Reunion! 

And now on behalf of the Class of 1944, I wish to pre- 
sent our 25th Reunion Gift of $1,145 to the college for the 




purpose of buying a projector or other audio-visual equip- 
ment for the Department of Religion in memory of three 
of our classmates — Lucy Farmer, V. V. Garth, and 
Gwynne Northrup. We sincerely hope that this will give 
pleasure to future Salemites for many years to come.

Oh, how we missed you all who didn't come! Your 
ears must have been burning though, for we surely did 
talk about you. There were only 16 of us at the luncheon 
and our meeting, but we had a grand time talking over 
old times and catching up on all the news. Everybody 
looked grand ( or so we thought ) — even better than when 
we were in school. I do hope you won't have any trouble 
picking out each of us in our class picture. Just to help 
you though, look for Mary Lewis, Adair, Geachy, Kaka, 
Treva, Nellie, Mary Louise, Lelia, Craig, Ginny, Lib 
and Tap, Becky Cozart and Becky Howell, Margaret, and 

5 



Doris C. I felt very elegant with my orchids that I re- 
ceived for speaking for our class at the General Meet- 
ing. (That's a hint so that you can find me easily!) 

Old Salem was perfectly beautiful in the early morn- 
ing sunlight, and absolutely fascinating to those of us 
who hadn't been back in some few years. Many of the 
old landmarks were gone, but the general face-lifting and 
restoration was just charming. It is truly worth a special 
visit just to see it all. Of course, the new buildings on 
back campus are marvelous, but the dorms we remember 
haven't changed a whole lot. Our class meeting was held 
in a classroom in Old Chapel — air-conditioned, too. The 
only familiar thing up there was a framed stained glass 
window! 

We elected officers to serve presumably until next 
reunion (not 50th, I hope!). I found I had done too 
good a job on reunion and was re-elected president. Our 
thanks go to Erleen Lawson Wheeling who has done 
such a good job gathering news since our last reunion, 
but asked to be relieved of this responsibility. 

Our fund agents for this year were Mary Alderson 
Kearns, Becky Cozart Smith, Mary Ellen Carrig 
French, Katherine Fort Neel, Ginny Gibson Grif- 
fith, Becky Howell, Mary Lewis Lawhon, Sarah 
Lindley Hurd, Katherine Manning Skinner, Har- 
riett Sink Prophet, and Catherine Swinson Wea- 
thers. They really put forth a major effort, for our class 
members contributed $1,145 in the campaign. 

Lunch was in Corrin Refectory, which has been en- 
larged but not air-conditioned. The Book Store has been 
remodeled and enlarged, but we missed Mr. Snavely. The 
P. O. has been moved, and gone is the DoNut Shop and the 
Drug Store; but the other buildings around the Square 
haven't undergone too much change. 

Saturday night Geachy took eight of us to the Old 
Town Club for dinner on the terrace overlooking the 
pool — Becky C, Becky H., Adair, Lip, Tap, Ginny, Mar- 
garet, and me. Lelia and Craig also spent the night, but 
they were involved in graduation festivities with their 
husbands and daughters and couldn't be with us. Geachy 's 
17 year old son asked her the next morning what she was 
doing out after midnight without Herman, but that was 
nothing! The rest of us had three connecting rooms at the 
motel and sat up talking until 3:30 a.m.! We had all our 
annuals and thumbed through them and checked over let- 
ters from classmates and really had a glorious time! 

Geachy didn't know we stayed up so late and had to 
make two trips down to see us on Sunday morning before 
she found us awake! Sweet thing, she brought us hot 
coffee, donuts, and sugar cake. 

It was so much fun that we decided we would sched- 
ule a purely social reunion soon and bring our husbands. 
We may not meet at commencement time because so many 
are involved in their own high school and college activi- 
ties in early June and can't attend. I do hope more of 
you can be with us next time. 

I received a fair response to the 126 questionnaires I 
sent out. Those of you who didn't return them, please fill 
them out and send them to Kaka before September 1st, so 
that she will have some news for the Fall Bulletin. (Mrs.

Salem. ) 

And now for the news we gathered. Ann Caldwell 
Thurston is living in New York, where she is employed 
as a secretary for Pickands Mather & Co. at Rockefeller 
Plaza. Mary Ellen Carrig French attended Jim's 30th 
reunion at Princeton the same weekend as ours. Their son 
will enter there as a freshman in the fall. Oldest daughter 
"Peetie" finished college last June, was married in Sep- 
tember, and is living in Boston. Becky is at Smith, and 
"Kiki" attends The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry. The 
two oldest girls have been to Norway and Japan on the 
Experiment in International Living programs. Mary Ellen 
writes that she and Jim have managed to go abroad every 
year and hope to do even more traveling with all the 
children away. 

Becky Cozart Smith has been serving as Food Serv- 
ice Director for the Goldsboro City Schools for a year and 
a half and just loves it. Son Tommy will be a freshman at 
Wake Forest next year, and Paula attends high school at 
home. He's an Eagle Scout, President of the National 
Honor Society, member of the high school baseball team, 
and spent 3 months bicycling around Europe last sum- 
mer with a group of boys from Goldsboro. Margery 
Craig is Director of Music and Organist at the North 
Avenue Presbyterian Church in Atlanta. She visited Salem 
in May and was unable to attend reunion because of her 
working schedule. 

Dot Farrell is a Lt. Colonel in the Air Force, pres- 
ently stationed in Izmir, Turkey, as commander of an 
epidemiological laboratory. She was awarded the Air Force 
Commendation medal in 1966 for her work on menin- 
goccoccal meningitis. Dot expects to be transferred to 
Wiesbaden, Germany, soon, where she will be stationed for 
18 months. Jean Fulton Wingerd sent a picture of her 
husband with their 4 girls and 1 boy, which we all en- 
joyed looking at very much. Attractive family! Daughter 
Kay is at Salem. Ginny Gibson Griffith has one daugh- 
ter who is at Salem Academy; so she is a frequent visitor 
to Winston-Salem. 

Phyllis Hill Leiphart has two girls and a boy who 
keep her busy with the Scouts in addition to her own ac- 
tivities with the Junior League. Daughter Phyllis is in- 
terested in going to Salem. Son Charley is a sport addict 
and was a member of the State Championship Little

she still plays a lot of tennis but may have to convert 
to golf in order to find a partner. Becky Howell teaches 
three grades of Honors English at Rockingham High 
School and is serving as President of the N. C. English 
Teachers Association for 1969-70. In addition to this she 
is organist and choir director, President of the Woman's 
Society, member of the Board of Stewards, and a Sunday 
School teacher at her church. She really has a busy 
schedule!

REUNION NOTES 



Class of 1899 

Correspondent: 

Bessie Whittington Pfohl (Mrs. J. Kenneth) 

8 West Academy St., Winston-Salem, N. C. 27108 

Reunion Reporter: 

Bessie Pfohl Campbell '23 (Mrs. Edmund D.) 
2912 North Glebe Rd., Arlington, Va. 22207 

The Class of '99 met following the Alumnae Luncheon 
at the home of Bessie Whittington Pfohl, 8 West Academy 
Street. In discussing the events of the morning there was 
unanimous agreement that Salem was an alma mater of 
whom they could well be proud. Asked to comment 
specifically, Julia Herring Miller said, "When I gradu- 
ated from Salem I was only sixteen, the youngest sixteen in 
my class. 1 love Salem, I love life. This is a beautiful world 
to me, and I've experienced a little bit of everything. I've 
had such a good time that I expect to come back for 
another re-union." 

Alberta Kern said she had lived in Salem all of 
her life, had watched Salem College grow and change, and 
"loves it still." Her hobbies — doing a little of everything 
— painting, crocheting, gardening and keeping her own 
home. 

Pictured from left to right: Alberta Kearns, Mattie Morgan 



Mattie Morgan Aycock described her interesting 
family — three sons — lawyer, business man, doctor, 11 
grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren. She is a gardener 
with a large and beautiful garden which she tends; mowing 
the lawn is the only chore which is too much for her. She 
is delighted with the well-kept beauty of the Salem campus 
and the Salem Square. 

Bessie Whittington Pfohl suggested that a message 
of sympathy be sent to the family of Elizabeth Wade 
McArthur, "whose sudden death has provided a note 
of sadness in this re-union. She had hoped to be with 
us." Bessie also commented on the blessings of her own 
life, saying that she came to Salem to study music and 
through music met the man to whom she was happily 
married for 66 years and with whom she served the 
Moravian Church — Bishop J. Kenneth Pfohl. Now, since 
Bishop Pfohl's death, she continues to use her music by 
playing the Tannenberg organ in the Chapel in the 
Brother's House for the pleasure of many of the groups 
who tour Old Salem. 

In conclusion Bessie responded to her classmates' re- 
quest and played several of their favorite selections and 
hymns on the piano. With good-byes came the promise 
to meet again, soon, "now that Salem has once again 
brought us together."

From the Alumnae Office: 

A Jacksonville friend of Elizabeth Wade Mc- 
Arthur '99, wrote that Mrs. McArthur was active until a 
week before her death. The friend spoke of the pleasure 
Mrs. McArthur derived from the Delius article about 
the late Mattie Belle Bullard Richmond in the March 
Bulletin. The Florida Times Union for June 3 pays tribute 
to Mrs. McArthur "whose work in beautifying Jackson- 
ville won statewide recognition . . . Affectionately known 
here as "Mrs. Garden Club," Mrs. McArthur worked many 
years in beautifying city parks, gardens and residential 
areas. She won recognition as a life member of Jackson- 
ville's Garden Club and a member of the Florida Federa- 
tion of Garden Clubs, for years of work in planting 
camellias and azaleas throughout the city." 



Class of 1909

Mary Howe Farrow (Mrs. Thomas V.)

Our 60th Class Reunion was a memorable occasion. 
Nine of us gathered at the home of Edith Willingham 
WoMBLE on Friday, June 6 for luncheon. Sixty years 
interim since our graduation in 1909 had not quenched the 
lively spirit or sparkle of eye for the group assembled 
around Edith's beautifully appointed table. The floral cen- 
terpiece was an arrangement of daisies, mums, snapdragons, 
and lemon lilies in Salem colors of yellow and white, and 
small Salem pennants as favors. Dolls dressed in caps and 
gowns formed a processional line along the table thus 
reviving memories of Seniors marching into chapel, church, 
and other formal occasions. Those were "Peaceful Marches" 



in 1909! The one male figure among the dolls represented 
Dr. John H. Clewell, who was then ending his last year as 
President of Salem. 

Another doll wore a pierced red heart on her robe 
representing Maude Carmichael who was to become the 
first bride in the class. Soon after graduation Maude was 
married to the Reverend E. E. Williamson and thus began 
her life's service in the Lord's Work, giving the past thirty 
years as teacher of a Sunday School class named in her 
honor at the Centenary Methodist Church in Winston-Sa- 
lem. 

A picture of our "Daisy Chain" was held in review and 
roll call from the 1909 Sights and Insights stimulated con- 
versation for "Do-You-Remember" stories of sixty years 
ago at Salem. 

The Den in Edith's home displayed many pictures of 
her wonderful family of six children at all ages and stages, 
illustrious careers and professions. She was proclaimed the 
champion grandmother of our class with twenty-four grand- 
children to talk about. 

Louise Wilson Clark of Tarboro was the "Greatest 
grandmother" for the day claiming seven third-generation 
branches on her family tree. Louise's daughter, Mrs. F. P. 
Jenkins, accompanied her to the reunion luncheon and 
assisted in getting snapshots of the "girls" in Edith's 
colorful garden. 

Helen Haynes Rhea, "Dee" came from Bristol, 
Tenn., that morning. She was in the process of moving to 
another residence and in the midst of the usual confusion 
involved, friend husband helped her find matching shoes 
and put her on the bus at 4 a.m. for Winston-Salem. The 
strenuous trip had not weakened "Dee's" lively spirit, and 
she wore a becoming white lace dress she made for the 
occasion.

Bertie Langley Cash of Washington, D. C, came 
down for a visit to relatives in Winston-Salem and for our 
reunion. Bertie was considered one of the "bright students" 
in our class and we were interested in hearing of the 
achievements of her fine sons. One is now in Viet Nam. 

Della Johnson Walker wore her class pin on a 
charm bracelet. The pin, set with pearls and rubies, bore 
the class motto, "Phi Gamma Nu," "To the Victors belong 
the Palms." The motto was suggested to us by Bishop Ed- 
ward Rondthaler. 

Mary Oliver, conceded to be the "Star Student" in 
our class became a public health nurse and served thirty- 
one years in the Cherokee Indian Reservation. Mary at- 
tended the reunion under slight handicap using a crutch 
as a precaution for an injured hip several years ago. 

Terrell Young continues to make her home in Win- 
ston-Salem after retiring from many years of teaching 
school. Her continued interests are in church and com- 
munity activities. 

Mary Howe Farrow came from Greenville, S. C. 
She is active in church and civic affairs and a member of 
the Greenville County Council for the Aging. A varied 
schedule of activities is in progress for the Senior Citizens' 
pleasure in Greenville. As your class correspondent I urge 
all of you to furnish news items about yourselves for the 
Salem Bulletin. 

We were happy to have Edith's sister, Camille Willing- 
ham Izler, and her daughter, Mrs. Gaither Jenkins, with us 
for the luncheon. 

Written communications from the following classmates 
were read. NoNiE Carrington Lipscomb, our Senior 
Class President, was unable to be with us due to health 
problems. Her love and best wishes were expressed to 
each one present. 

Kathleen Korner, confined to a wheelchair, wrote 
of her interests in DAR and church and scrapbooks as a 
favorite hobby. She has compiled our class scrapbook over 
a period of years which we enjoyed viewing at this re- 
union. The scrapbook will be turned over to the college 
Alumnae Office for permanent files. 

Lilla Mallard Parker's letter was filled with 
warmth and affection for our Salem heritage and she makes 
her annual visit at the Easter season. Lilla was involved 
in her musical commitments until after June 9th and 
could not join us at this time. 

Dr. Margery Lord's letter from Asheville brought 
greetings and regrets that she could not be with us. The 
letterhead indicated that she is Administrator in the Al- 
cohol Information Center, Board of Alcoholic Control, 
Asheville, N. C. Margery, the M.D. of the class of 1909, 
still active and going strong. Could she give us her pre- 
scription? 

Claudia Shore Kester's daughter, Becky Nisbet, had 
sent us a copy of the Memoir of her mother who passed 
away in February, 1969. In reverence, an excerpt was read 
at this time which gave witness to her personal faith in 
God's Will and her Christian philosophy in facing all the 
facts of life in health, sorrow and physical affliction. 

Mary Keehln Simmons' son. Gene Simmons of Tar- 
boro, sent two purple-throated orchids in memory of his 
mother and with congratulations to her classmates on their 
60th reunion. The orchids were arranged on silver can- 
delabra on the dining room sideboard. 



Attention was called to the announcement in the 1969 
Salem catalog to the establishment of a Memorial Fund 
by the John A. Kester Foundation with the initial gift of 
$10,000 in memory of Claudia Kester. The fund is to be 
used for faculty educational enrichment in summer study, 
attendance at professional meetings, etc. 

The Lehman Chair of Literature was also listed in this 
catalog at the present value of |26,800. This fund began 
with our small gift of 150.00 in 1909 and a strong resolu- 
tion that Miss Lehman's memory should be perpetuated. 
This fund merits the continued interest of those who sat 
under her tutelage during the fifty years she taught at 
Salem. 

On Saturday, June 7th, some of our group joined in 
the social hour for coffee and sugar cake in the Fine Arts 
Center before the annual Alumnae meeting. We sat near 
the front of the auditorium and received loud applause 
when the Alumnae President called for us to stand. Later 
we enjoyed the luncheon in Corrin Refectory with the 
usual recognitions and announcements on that occasion. 

The 1909 Class Reunion was a happy and thrilling ex- 
perience for all who were there; it was indeed an effort to 
make the grade, but rewarding in memories that each one 
shall cherish the rest of her days.

We began our 55 th reunion with coffee in the foyer 
and moved to Hanes Auditorium for the general alumnae 
meeting in that marvelous multi-purpose Fine Arts Build- 
ing, which replaced Memorial Hall, dear to the hearts of 
many of us. 

Eleven of us attended our reunion, seven from Win- 
ston-Salem, four from out of town. 

Hope Coolidge flew down from Concord, Massachu- 
setts, but her visit was cut short by the death of her 
cousin, Mrs. Lesley Moore, with whom she lived. We are 
proud of Hope's outstanding accomplishments while she 
was dietitian at the University of North Carolina at Greens- 
boro. Ruth Potts Scott from Richmond, Virginia, came 
with a prized identification card, a Golden Four bearing 
Dr. Rondthaler's dynamic signature as record of her schol- 
arship and good citizenship while a Salem student. 

Adelaide McKnight Whicker, from North Wilkes- 
boro, also was present. Adelaide has piled up a record as 
housewife and D.A.R. regent. She said, "When you have 
helped five children grow up and finish college, you are an 
humble person." She had our sympathy for the death in 
May of her lawyer son, J. H. Whicker, Jr. Your new cor- 
respondent, Lettie Crouch, came from Mayodan, a town 
that Dr. Rondthaler declared surpassed Rome in spreading 
over more than Seven Hills.

Fifteen girls attended the 30th reunion and wished 
for all the others who could not come. A dinner Friday 
night at the Steak House, buzz sessions far into the night, 
Alumnae General Meeting, luncheon, and then the in- 
dividual class meetings rounded out the full visit to Salem. 

In the excitement of seeing each other and exchanging 
news at our class meeting we failed to elect new officers 
before most of you left. So our permanent president, Ann- 
ette McNeely Leight, called an executive session of the 
few of us left and appointed Mary Turner Willis Lane 
acting president while Annette is in Greece, Kate Pratt 
Ogburn correspondent, and Frances Turnage Still- 
man fund chairman. 

News of the fifteen ptesent follows: Julia Preston 
McAfee has her oldest son in Law School, having just re- 
turned from the Peace Corps. Daughter Julie is married 
to a lieutenant now serving in Korea, and Preston is in 
the 7th grade. Mary Turner Willis Lane, Ph.D., spoke 
10 



for our class at the luncheon. Her daughter, a graduate of 
Carolina, went on an archaelogical dig to the desert in 
Israel last year. She and Mary Turner are going to Bermuda 
this summer. Mary Turner is teaching at Carolina. 

Caroline Pfohl Carter is moving into a new house 
after Christmas. She is expecting her second grandchild in 
the fall. We met her lovely daughter who is a student at 
Salem. 

Felicia Martin Melvin is expecting her son Jim 
home from Viet Nam in September. He has been wounded, 
but hopefully not too seriously. He will go back to college. 
Daughter Peggy will enter Salem in the fall. Frances 
Watungton Wilson has one daughter who is a stu- 
dent at Mary Baldwin, transferring to Carolina in the fall. 
Ada Harvey Worley and family have recently moved to 
Winston-Salem on Arbor Road. Her two daughters are 
married and her son will enter high school here. 

Kate Pratt Ogburn's son John graduated from Duke 
and will enter medical school at Vanderbilt. Annette Mc- 
Neely Leight surprised us with her presence and will be 
in Walkertown this summer, then back to Athens, Greece 
for two or three more years. Molly graduated firom Salem, 
two daughters are at Duke, the other four are in the 
American school in Athens. 

Martha MacNair Tornow had an extra long week- 
end combining Salem reunion with Wake Forest gradua- 
tion. MacNair was to graduate from Law School on Mon- 
day. He will have to take the state board exams in August 
and then report to the Army. He received his commission 
when he was in W. F. undergraduate school. Jane Ellen is 
working in Chapel Hill at the University Book Store. Eliza- 
zeth is in the (3th grade and will attend the program for 
gifted children at Cullowhee this summer. Martha and Win 
work with the young people at Presbyterian church every 
Sunday night, and Martha takes over as president of the 
Women of the Church for a two year term this fall. 

Mary Louise Siewers Stokes and Colin flew to 
Berlin, Germany in the spring. While there they visited 
their daughter and her husband, serving with the army. Son 
Henry finished Wingate and will enter Appalachian this 
fall. Don will be in the 11th grade at Reynolds High. 

Peggy Bowen Leight and George had visited Tootie 
Powell Capehart last spring. Tootie and her husband 
stayed with Peggy this week-end. Peggy's son George has 
finished first year medical school at Duke and first year 
marriage. (His bride is the lovely Pam Davis we Duke 
fans knew as chief cheerleader at Duke the year before.) 
Peggy and George have beautiful flowers and presented the 
girls at the dinner with orchids they had grown. Tootie 
has three children in school, one at Stuart Hall, one at 
Saint Mary's, one at the University of Denver, and the 
oldest in the Navy Hospital Corps stationed in Ports- 
mouth. 

Glenn Griffin Alford's son finished State with an

To those of you who could not attend our 20th Re- 
union, we send greetings and news of a pleasant afternoon 
and evening. Among other business we elected some new 
officers. 

Those attending (see picture) had some bits of infor- 
mation to pass on. DAWSON Millikan Lee is teaching 
five-year kindergarten and has boys in 5th and 8th grades. 
lONE BrADSHER Maxwell, attending her first reunion, 
reported on lone, 16, Skip, 14, and Owen, 11. Helen 
Brown Hobson has moved to Salisbury where she is re- 
novating an old house into a home. TOOTSIE GiLLESPiE 
Pethel "rumored" she might go to U.N.C.-Greensboro in 
the fall to study case work or to "do her thing." 

Nancy WrAY White is quite active teaching Sunday 
School, teaching youth fellowship and participating in the 
High Point Crime and Juvenile Delinquency Task Force 
Under the Model Cities Program (top that for a name.) 
She also reports son Gee graduated this year and will go to 
Hampton-Sydney. She also has to keep track of Wray, 16, 
and Bob White, 13. 

Jeanne Duncan Greear also has a high school 
graduate, Viv, who will be going to college at Con- 



verse. Bett Epps Pearson has her four boys involved this 
summer. Steve is going to Europe, Rob will be doing con- 
struction work, Martin will spend six weeks in Mexico 
studying Spanish for college credit, and Joe goes to camp. 
Boots Lambeth Glasgow has a daughter, Laura, who

"second generation!" Another June graduate, W. A. Brad- 
sher, IV, belongs to Jane Patton Bradsher and he will 
attend Wake Forest where Donald has been elected to the 
Board of Trustees. 

Would you believe that the 23 members of our class 
who attended the reunion collectively represented 59 chil- 
dren? 

Some news from classmates who did not attend the 
reunion did filter down to me. We were sorry to hear that 
Frances Reznick Lefkowitz's mother passed away in 
May while MARY WlLLIS Truluck lost her mother in 
December. Our condolences also go to Dot Arrington 
Richards who lost her sister a month ago. Jean Padgett 
Hart is in Oxford, England where her husband is on 
sabbatical. JANIE FoWLKES Lake wrote to wish us a good 
reunion day. MARY MoTSINGER Shephard could not be

How very proud we are of DoRis McMillan Eller, 
the new President of the Salem College Alumnae Associa- 
tion. Doris received the gavel from Mary Louise Edwards 
on Reunion day and will serve in this office for two years. 
Those of us who witnessed the event were impressed with 
her poise and efficiency, and know that Doris will handle 
this tremendous job graciously and well. Our best wishes 
go with her! 

We were thirteen in number at the luncheon, and 
though we "lost" a couple before dinner, we added three 
more for the evening activities. Alison Britt Barron 
was Reunion Chairman for our 15 th and did a lovely job. 
After the luncheon, we had a class meeting in Gramley 
Dorm (where is that.') and talked about all of you who 
weren't there. We had a picture made, which I guess ap- 
pears elsewhere in this Bulletin, and there never existed a 
more attractive or intelligent group. 

Alison arranged our dinner at the Twin City Club, and 
the food was excellent. We managed to out-talk the band, 
and even supplied our own music during the breaks — 
"Shope" on the piano and "Boop" on the drums. It was 
a most successful day, and Alison, we all thank you. 

While we were discussing ways of getting news, "Boop" 
suggested a type of chain letter in which each girl would 
add a few lines about herself and send it on to another. 



So later in the summer we will try this, and if one comes 
your way, do keep it going. In the meantime, we give you 
news of those present at reunion. 

Elaine Williams Avera, David, and their three 
daughters are in Winston-Salem at 521 Westover Avenue. 
Elaine kindly agreed to be chairman of our 20th reunion, 
and if you have any great ideas for the occasion, do let her 
know. 

Sarah Sue Tisdale Ferrell was not with us but 
sent her regards. She was attending with Vernon all the 
festivities surrounding his high school reunion in Win- 
ston-Salem that day. ANN Bondurant Young was also 
at this high school reunion, so we missed seeing her. Sarah 
Sue is building a new home, as is Molly Quinn Booe, 
and they will be neighbors. We are glad to note that 
Molly has recovered beautifully from her illnesses of the 
past couple of years. 

Jean Shope Kennett and Stan were over from 
Greensboro. Jean is as bouncy as ever, in spite of (or 
maybe because of) keeping up with children aged 13, 11, 
and 4. She told us about Joan and Mai Bennett's lovely 
second home on the Potomac which they enjoy with their 
three children. 

Barbara Allen will leave Chapel Hill soon for 
Montgomery, W. Va. She will be teaching history at the 
W. Va. Institute of Technology. Jean Edwards Riddick 
and Boots Hudson Beamon were up from Raleigh. Boots 
has three lively sons, and Jean, a lovely little daughter. 
They added a sad item of news when they told us that 
Patsy Gattis Wilson of Tallahassee recently lost the 
youngest of her four children, a 5-month-old daughter.

It's hard to know where to start on reunion week-end. 
A good time was had by all, and we missed those of you 
who could not be with us. It was fun seeing those from 
the class of '54 and '56, so please read their news, too. 

Everyone looked great. No one from our class had a 
real "mini" on, but we weren't out of style either — no 
one was too fat or too thin. We just bragged on how good 
everyone looked. 

Helen Carole Watkins Thompson and Nancy 
Florance VanKirk are still May Court material. Nancy 
flew down from Washington for the day. Mary Anne 
Raines Goslen and Tinkie Millican met her at the 
plane. Nancy reports that Ralph, having lost his eye sight, 
is taking a computer course and learning Braille. Their 
spirits are high, and they are enjoying their two small sons, 
and working on a vacation house in West Virginia. Nancy 
has a few piano students. I really don't believe I've seen 
Nancy looking any livelier — her hair was fixed so pretty. 

Mary Anne is planning on going back to school to get 
her master's degree — would you beheve Elementary Edu- 



cation? Mary Ann and Frank have three boys and a girl 
and live in Greensboro. 

Tinkie still lives and works in Richmond, and loves 
every minute of it. She sees Phyl Stinnett quite often, 
and had thought Phyl was coming to reunion with her, but 
then there were conflicts. 

Pat and Pat ( PAT MARSH Sasser ) got a head start on 
all of us by getting to Winston on Thursday, and were 
waiting for all of us when we arrived Friday night. They 
left their two sons and a daughter in Goldsboro, where Dr. 
Pat is in General Practice and Mrs. Pat has become a good 
"country cook." 

Another from Goldsboro was Helen Carole Wat- 
kins Thompson with husband John. They have two boys, 
and John is active in Boy Scout work. 'V'ou should hear 
Helen Carole tell of her "camping experiences" — I just 
can't see her camping — but she does, and is going again 
this summer. 

Marguerite Blanton York and Mike came up 
from Atlanta. Mike is on the staff at Georgia Tech, and 
Marguerite was President of the Salem Alumnae Club in 
Atlanta last year. They have two sons. 

Also from Atlanta were jANE Little Gibson and Bob. 
They are enjoying being settled in Atlanta once again. Bob 
is a partner in a temporary help agency — I can't remem- 
ber the name — but there was so much talking going on 
my head was spinning. The Gibsons put us all to shame 
on the new dance steps, and "keeping the action going." 

Bobbie Kuss Stabile drove down with her two oldest 
girls, and left Jerry and their two-year-old son in Bethle- 
hem. Jerry is a Thoracic Surgeon and we all hope he will 
get to one of our reunions so he can see that all those wild 
tales aren't true about Bobbie's Salem sisters. 

I think Ernestine Kapp Studer had on the prettiest 
outfit of the day. She looked lovely. Ernie had been in 
Winston visiting, and was leaving after reunion for her 
home in San Antonio, Texas. Her husband builds nursing 
homes all over Texas. They have one seven year old son. 
Instead of singing and music clubs, Ernie's life is now 
filled with Spanish Pigeon shoots in Mexico and Texas, 
and all kinds of hunting. Can you imagine her with a 
gun.' 

Bonnie Hall Stuart and Hal are their same old 
wonderful selves. They have two girls, and Hal is in Gen- 
eral Practice in Elkin. We laughed about one of his 
patients wanting to know if he "frosts" his hair! We 
are planning on meeting the Stuarts in Atlanta the first or 
second week-end in October — so if any others would like 
to join us, write me for details. Hal, as our "class doctor," 
attended the class meeting, and was to notify Guy Re- 
velle, our "class legal advisor" of a job we "gave him." 

Ann Lang Blackmon and Bob arrived from Louis- 
ville, Ky., where they delayed moving into their new home 
for two weeks, so they could be with us at reunion, and 
then go on to the Gulf Coast for a week. They brought 
pictures of their lovely new house. Their new address is 
6019 Innes Trace, Louisville, Ky. 40207. 

RosANNE WORTHINGTON PruneAU and Jean came 

from Raleigh. Rosanne had beautiful pictures of their three 

children. The Pruneaus have been trying to build for the 

past year, but the plans are still on the drawing board.

For those of you who were unable to attend our 13th 
Reunion, we surely had a good time, but we missed all 
the others in the class of '56. There were 17 girls back 
and almost that many husbands. I think the husbands in 
our class look forward to our reunions as much as we do. 

Some of us were able to start our reunion early on Fri- 
day night, but by Saturday morning we were almost "talked 
out." Our day on campus was most enjoyable, and by class 
meeting time that afternoon we were all really wound up. 
Barbara Berry Paffe graciously accepted the nomina- 
tion for class president. I, not so graciously, volunteered 




to be class correspondent for two more years if Miss Byrd 
would put up with my sending our class news in always 
after the deadline. This reminds me of those weekly themes 
we had to write in Freshman English. 

Saturday night we held our class dinner and dance at 
the Twin City Club with the classes of '54, '55, and '57. 
This was really the highlight of the weekend. 

I guess Susie Glaser Fisher would get the prize for 
the one who came the farthest for our reunion, if we 
had been giving one. She was there in grand "Susie style" 
all dressed up in her mini-skirts, quite the eye-catcher. 
Next she's going to bring Bob, she said. We just wonder 
though, cause Susie had a ball. 

Marianne Boyd Gore's letter to Miss Byrd back in 
April announced news of an addition to her family on 
March 29th — Charlotte Rosemary Gore. Marianne had 
planned to come to reunion. Sorry you couldn't make it. 

Bunny Gregg Marshall had planned to come too, 
but sickness changed her plans at the last minute. 

News from Ann Campbell Prescott is that after 
August 1st they plan to move to Greensboro to live "for- 
ever." Jimmy finishes his internship at the V. A. Hospital 
in Salisbury at that time. 

Pat Malone "Wilson wanted to get back to Salem 
but had to take her son to camp that week-end. She and 
the children moved to Scotland Neck in January. Her 
children's ages are Patsy, eleven years; Joy, ten; Ellen, 
seven; Charles, four. 

Emma McCotter Latham had a vacation conflict so 
she couldn't make reunion either. Thanks goes to Emma 
for doing such a good job as Fund Chairman and for 
keeping the job, since we volunteered for you, Emma, at 
our class meeting. 

Rose Dickinson Harlow wrote Barbara from Con- 
necticut that she would be unable to come to reunion due 
to coming to North Carolina later on in the summer for a 
visit with her family. She has four children, two boys and 
two girls. 

Mary E. McClure Phillips has moved back to her 
hometown of Graham, N. C. 

One sad news note for our class was the obituary of 
the death of EMILY McClure Doar on April 28, 1969, 
She is survived by her two sons, her mother and father, 
and a brother in 'Varnville, South Carolina. 

All of you who haven't been heard from in a long time 
send me some news for the Fall Bulletin. All of you start 
making plans right now for our 15th Reunion. We de- 
cided to have one then!

Remarks - Alumnae Day 



DALE H. GRAMLEY 



Someone has said that alumnae gather in reunions on 
Alumnae Day primarily to see how their classmates have 
changed. 

This is partly true, I am sure. However, the common 
bond — the agency for reunion — is Alma Mater and the 
associations alumnae had there in earlier years. And so, 
inevitably I conclude, alumnae are interested also in catch- 
ing a glimpse or two of how the College itself has changed. 

It is of the changes in the College that I would speak 
briefly. I couldn't go beyond that. And I wouldn't if I 
could. I would merely say that all of you look wonderful. 
Welcome back! 



This has been an interesting, busy year at Salem. Each 
succeeding year seems to me to be more interesting, some- 
what busier, and, in a sense, more difficult than the last 
. . . Perhaps my age is showing. 

But even my younger colleagues detect increasing 
changes and complexities. These center in what I would 
call a heightened desire for involvement on the part of 
everyone connected with the College: trustees, faculty, 
alumnae and students. 

The alumnae, for example, wanted increased represen- 
tation on the Board of Trustees. And they got it. You 
now have six instead of three seats on the Board . . . 
And the Academy has three instead of two. 

Meanwhile, the students gave evidence of increased 
interest in helping make decisions as to how things are 
directed and handled on campus. They presented 10 pe- 
titions for changes this year — a new record as far as I 
can determine. Most of the petitions were reasonable and 
sensible. Only one was denied, as I recall, and that was for 
free meals for their parents anytime they visited on 
campus. 

The students asked that the representatives they have 
had since 1964 as consultants on three faculty committees 
be made full voting members of these committees and 
that student consultants be added to four other faculty 
committees. This was granted by faculty vote, effective next 
fall. 

They will then have voting members on the Curricu- 
lum Committee, the Calendar Committee, the Class Attend- 
ance Committee, and the Library Committee. And their 
advice as consultants will be welcomed by the Catalogue 
Committee, the Academic Standards Committee, the Ad- 
missions Commttee and the Academic Council itself. 

For many years, of course, students have outnumbered 
faculty and administrative persons on the Assembly-Lec- 
ture Committee. And, obviously, they have had full control 
of the legislative functions of Student Government and 
the disciplinary functions of the Judicial Board — except, 
in the latter case, when probation, suspension or expulsion 
of a fellow student is involved. 

Here, a Faculty Advisory Board of five persons is wel- 
comed by them in handling serious cases. And the Judicial 



Board and the Faculty Advisory Board together seem re- 
lieved to have the President of the College put their 
recommendations into effect. 

In my 20 years at Salem I recall only three occasions 
when these two Boards failed to reach agreement on dis- 
ciplinary recommendations and the President had to make 
the final decision. 

This is an excellent record. Ours is and long has been 
a responsible, eflfective Student Government. Students who 
have transferred to Salem from other colleges have told 
me on many occasions that the Honor Tradition and Stu- 
dent Government at Salem are distinctively outstanding. 

What else have students been involved in this year.' 

Well, in cooperation with the Faculty Curriculum 
Committee and separately, they have been studying and 
making suggestions about the curriculum. 

They asked that Juniors and Seniors be permitted to 
elect one course outside their major field of study on a 
Pass-Fail basis. This was put into effect. 

They suggested that they be permitted to schedule 
their own examinations, and this was tried out in the 
exam period which ended earlier this week. The plan will 
be evaluated in the fall. 

They asked at the end of last school year that there be 
some evening discussions this year with Faculty on mat- 
ters not related to course work. The Alumnae Executive 
Board contributed S500 and the result was activity in this 
matter, plus the showing of five controversial movies, 
which were very well attended, with discussion of these 
movies afterwards. 

This was a partial answer to the cries of students 
around the nation — and on this campus — to make 
education relevant. You've heard that cry, I know. 

There is a real problem, you will understand, however, 
in making calculus or physical chemistry or Latin 102 and 
106 relevant to the urban crisis, poverty, racial tensions, 
air and water pollution, highway traffic deaths, the con- 
tinuing inflationary spiral, the Viet Nam War, flights to 
the moon, and tax and other problems in Raleigh and 
Washington. 

Most of our students seem to understand this. 

The students, also, through their YWCA, conducted a 
very successful program with a group of Negro girls from 
Happy Hill Gardens, meeting every Tuesday afternoon in 
the College Gymnasium. 

Additionally, individual students made suggestions 
about a variety of things, (including how they thought 
the College could save some money). They also fell in love 
and out of love, parked their cars improperly, were wit- 
nesses in at least four court cases as the world-as-it-is-really- 
like closed in on the campus on occasion. 

They wrote letters to the student newspaper, embraced 
almost any rumor, stayed up too late in bull sessions, 
avoided the Infirmary, waved Hello even when I didn't 
wave first, misplaced too many library books, signed books 

15 



out for male friends at Wake Forest, got their term papers 
in at the last minute, shared their personal problems to 
a greater extent than ever before with the Dean of Stu- 
dents, changed majors, cried now and then, borrowed each 
others' hair curlers, and dated several barefoot boys. 

Some enjoyed themselves too much — and this was 
taken care of by the Faculty earlier this morning when 
four flunked out. However, the Dean's List was larger than 
ever this year . . . We win more than we lose, by a wide 
margin. 

All the Sophomores were rumored to be transferring 
in December and January. But strangely, or un-strangely 
enough, the Registrar's Office reports a higher percentage 
return of students than ever before. 

And the Seniors themselves, the largest class in Salem's 
history, and one which we shall miss exceedingly much, 
made an exceptionally fine showing in the Graduate Record 
Examinations. I saw the scores just the other day. 

Coming up next year will be more faculty-student dis- 
cussion about possible changes in the curriculum, con- 
sideration of a 4-1-4 calendar, and completion of the Col- 
lege's Self-Study Report for the Southern Association . . . 
Both the students and alumnae have worked on this latter 
project this year. The final report will include chapters 
containing appraisals and evaluations from these two in- 
terested and concerned elements of our constituency. 

I think Salem is the only college in the Southern As- 
sociation to invite wide student and alumnae participation 
in its Self-Study. Included will be recommendations for 
improvement from both groups. 

* # * 

And the Faculty, what about them? 

In a sense, as is traditional here and elsewhere, mem- 
bers of the Faculty continue to hold contrary views on 
many matters: in discussion among themselves at commit- 
tee and faculty meetings and, I am sure, in bull session 
comment about the Administration, the students, and so- 
ciety in general. 

This wouldn't be a college if everyone agreed. I will 
conclude sadly that Salem has failed if we ever reach the 
point wherein there is unanimous agreement on anything. 

But the Faculty has been most interested and helpful 
on behalf of an improved Salem. And their relationships 
with students have been superb. The Alumnae and Stu- 
dent reports for the Self-Study testify to this, as do the 
many comments I get personally from students. 

Thirteen of the Faculty are working on advanced de- 
grees, with at least one of these scheduled to complete his 
Ph.D. this summer. Four others are doing special study, 
three have research grants through the Piedmont University 
Center, three will be on leave of absence next year . . . 

* * * 

The operating budget of the College was balanced but 
tight this year. It will be tight again next year and cer- 
tain improvements must be delayed . . . Inflation in all 
its cruelty is hurting badly. But the College has no debt to 
any bank or other lending institutions and has no 30-year 
or 40-year obligations to the Federal Government. 

Our main deficiency is money to pay as high salaries 
and wages as we would like to pay. However, the average 
faculty salary at Salem in 1968-69 was higher than that 
at 17 other senior colleges and universities in North Caro- 
lina, and lower than at 12. We want very much to move 
up the scale. 

As to wages of service employees, I can report that 
Salem for several years has paid more than the Federal 
minimum required, considerably more than some of the 
16 



large universities were paying when strikes and rioting 
struck their campuses during this past year . . . 

* * * 

The year now nearing a close brought some generous 
gifts, especially from alumnae. Your response to the 
Alumnae Fund appeal has been magnificent. It will not 
only help greatly to solve some problems next year, but 
it will and does provide some encouragement to all of us 
on campus ... In these times we somehow need to know 
that alumnae care. 

In addition to the Alumnae Fund total of nearly 
$47,000 as of yesterday, clubs have contributed a total of 
$1,425 mostly for scholarship aid . . . $2,000 was added 
by bequest to the corpus of the scholarship in memory of 
Mary Ann Wolff Jones, '84; |700 to the Jennie Richardson 
Shaffner Scholarship Fund; $500 to the Tom and Mary 
Elizabeth Elrick Everett Scholarship; $200 to the Sallie 
Millis Armfield Scholarship; and $200 to the Beulah May 
Zachary Scholarship. 

Dr. S. D. Craig established a scholarship of $25,000 
in memory of his wife, Ruth Hanes Craig, an alumna. 

And a $20,000 scholarship in memory of Dr. Lucy 
Leinbach Wenhold, former head of the Romance Lan- 
guage Department, was established through a bequest of 
her brother, a former trustee, the late Dr. Robert F. 
Leinbach. 

It is particularly appropriate to announce at this time 
an initial gift of $10,000 to establish what is to be known 
as the Faculty Educational Enrichment Fund in memory 
of Claudia Shore Kester, Class of 1909. Mrs. Kester, who 
was a member of the 60-year reunion class, died in 
February. Donor is the John A. Kester Foundation of 
Winston-Salem, whose chief officer is Rebecca Jane Kester 
Nisbet (Mrs. John L Nisbet) of the Class of 1943. 

The late Mrs. Robert D. Shore, a former long-time 
trustee, who was made an honorary alumna in the 1940's, 
bequeathed the College $20,000 for endowment of the In- 
spector's House (office building) which she and her hus- 
band had restored in 1936 and which she and her children 
had refined and air-conditioned with a $30,000 gift in 
1967. 

* * * 

And the Senior Class Gift is a sum in excess of $600 
to be used at the discretion of the Dean of Students in 
helping students in emergency or other need. 

Total gifts for the year to date from all sources ap- 
proximate $260,000, of which nearly $90,000 is for en- 
dowment in one form or another; $80,000 for special pur- 
pose use, such as library books, science equipment, estab- 
lishment of an experimental psychology laboratory, estab- 
lishment of a computer laboratory, pianos for the School 
of Music, etc.; $47,000 for the Alumnae Fund, as already 
reported; and $43,000 for general operating purposes. 

The institution is indeed grateful for the generosity of 
its friends and believers. 

The College was informed also of two generous gifts 
to come sometime in the future. One is a bequest by an 
alumna in support of scholarship aid and awaits settle- 
ment of the estate to permit announcement of it. 

The other, which in a sense is perhaps the most spec- 
tacular in my administrative expeiience, was receipt earlier 
this week of a $25,000 life insurance policy, with the Col- 
lege as beneficiary, the gift of an alumna of the Class of 
1962. 

The 1968-69 year, the 197th in Salem's history, was 
truly a year of involvement — and I think of progress and 
improvement, too. 

Thank you for your significant part in it!

Class of 1939 

President and Correspondent: 

Sue Cooper Huffman (Mrs. W. George) 
1020 13th Ave., N.W., Hickory, N. C. 28601 

Alumnae Fund Chairman: 

Anne Summerell Davant (Mrs. Allison)

For those of you who were not with us, I was "elected" 
to the coveted position of class president and correspon- 
dent. So from now on I will be expecting to receive your 
news. I hope our recent get-together will inspire us all to 
share news and keep up with our classmates. 

We had a grand tenth reunion! It was wonderful to see 
everyone who was there, and we missed those of you who 
weren't able to come. We had thirty-five girls present, some 
coming from as far away as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and 
Florida. Some of our husbands were kind enough to com- 
ment on what a good looking group we were and how 
little we had changed. And we would all like to believe 
them! 

We want to thank ANN Brinson Hensel for her 
work in organizing the reunion and for the lovely open 
house she had. This gave us a chance to relax and visit 
together — and the food was delicious! It also gave us a 
chance to see the newest little Hensel, Richard Davidson, 
Jr. He is darling! 

Those of us who brought husbands and stayed fot 
dinner and dancing at the Twin City Club highly recom- 
mend this for our next reunion. We hope to see all of you 
there next time with husbands — and pictures of the 
children! 



Rachel Rose Dent married Edwin Duncan, Jr., in 
June of 1968. He is a senior vice-president of the North- 
western Bank and has two children, a daughter who grad- 
uated from Salem Academy this June and a son at Ashe- 
ville School. Their address is Route 2, Sparta, N. C.

Well, as you can see from the above, Margy refused 
the "gentle suggestion" that she continue as correspondent, 
and I was "invited" to take her place. You all please con- 
tinue to be as helpful to me as you were to her — David- 
son is not exactly on the beaten track, and I will need 
your help to keep up with everyone. First, a big thanks to 
Mason Kent Harris, Margy Harris Holt, and 
Francis Holton Noah for serving as our President, 
Correspondent, and Fund Agent, respectively, and doing 
such a fine job. At our reunion we also elected a new 
president and a new fund agent (see above). I know you 
will help them out too. Our new president, Becky, did a 
lot of work for our 5th reunion. We had a grand time 
yakking and catching up after five years, and about 30 of 
us covered those of you who couldn't make it as best we 
could. First, news of those who were at Salem on June 7: 

JODY Vance Avery and Bill have moved to Greens- 
boro (706 Meade Drive), where Bill is with Burlington 
Industries Research Center. They expect their first child 
in September. 

Martha Ann Williams Murray and Walt are 
moving back to Winston-Salem from Charlotte in the fall. 

Kaye Shugart Bourquin and Michel are in Win- 
ston, where she teaches at Wake Forest, he at Salem ( aren't 
we proud to have produced a college professor from the 
Class of '64.''). They are expecting a baby in August and 
have already lined up their neighbor, Anne Griffis 
Wilson, to baby-sit while Kaye teaches next year. Michel 
will be on leave of absence to study at the University of 
Connecticut. 

Donna Raper StALLINGS and Dallas are in Chatham, 
'Virginia (Box 104), and are expecting their first little 
Sunbeam in January. He/she will probably enter the 
world saying, "Hi, troops!" 

Anne Griffis Wilson will be a retired teacher next 
year (I suppose so she can baby-sit full-time for Kaye). 
They are in Winston, where Francis is Chaplain to students 
at N. C. Baptist Hospital. 

Jackie Lamond is in Alexandria, Virginia, working 
at Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, and moonlighting as a 
bilingual tour guide of Washington. In September she 
will change and be a buyer for Garfinckels, with the 
promise of the Paris showings in 6 months (too bad, 
isn't it.'). She says, "Come stay with me; we have a 
2-bedroom townhouse!" 

Barbara White McLarty reports, "Gordon and I 
have our first baby — a beautiful little girl, Melinda Ann, 
born December 31, 1968. Gordon is a Registered Repre- 
30 



sentative with Hornblower and Weeks-Hemphill-Noyes 
Stockbrokers in the Spartanburg area. 

Anne Ingram Kennedy and Bill have moved to 
Greensboro, where he is with Cone Mills. She substitutes 
in the elementary grades, but will probably quit after 
the birth of their baby this summer. 

Mary Lawrence Pond Harrell and John have a 
second child, John Chfton Harrell, Jr., born October 22 
1968. 

Peggy Perkins Wyatt reports, "Bob and I moved 
to Greensboro in November and bought our first home, 
which we are thoroughly enjoying. Our greatest enjoy- 
ment is still our beautiful little girl, Stephanie, who is now 
13 months old and into everything! I have run into Beth 
Troy Long (who was also at our reunion) a couple of 
times and she has two adorable children!" 

Sandi Kimbrell Livermon and Jim are in Enfield, 
N. C, and Sandi is the happiest mama you ever saw, with 
their little girl, and their newest addition, James Shields 
Livermon, III, born March 27, 1969. From Sandi came 
news of Bonnie Hauch Danser and Rick, who moved 
to Charleston, S. C. in June, where Rick is in the Navy 
JAG Corps. Bons (our class Attorney) worked with the 
New Jersey Legislature before the move. 

Fallie Lohr Cecil wins the prize for the biggest 
family so far — we decided to see who would catch up 
with her by our Tenth! She and K. had a little girl, 
Ellen Elizabeth, on February 4 — their third child, joining 
Richard and David, ages 4 and 5.

Well, those of us that were able to get back to Salem 
for our class reunion really had a most enjoyable day. 
After a business session, luncheon, and a class meeting on 
the campus, we all went out to Ann McMaster and Jane 
Grimsley's apartment for an extended get-together. All the 
girls looked great and still possessed the same Salem '67 
spirit. The day was great, and we hope all of us will be 
in attendance for the next reunion in 1972. 

It was decided at our class meeting that Ann Mc- 
Master will remain as president thus planning the next 
reunion. Ann Richert Ferrell will be 1969-70 Alumnae

HAPPINESS OUTSIDE THE MARKET PLACE 



By Mary Johnson Hart, '29 



Reprinted from the Duke University Alumni Register for March, 1968 by permission of Harry 
R. Jackson, editor of Alumni Publications. Mary is the wife of Dr. Deryl Hart, a surgeon and 
president emeritus of Duke University. After her graduation from Salem, she studied music in 
New York. 



Inspired no doubt by my grand- 
father, I once considered a career. Just 
before the turn of the century he re- 
tired from his business enterprises, 
and, being a Mason and having had 
rather extensive experience in dealing 
with people, he was asked to come to 
the Orphanage in Oxford, North Caro- 
lina, as superintendent to fill out the 
year. He closed his home in Raleigh 
and moved to Oxford with his family, 
consisting then of his wife and two 
unmarried daughters, my mother being 
the older. They lived in a very ro- 
mantic looking old building, the cen- 
tral part of which was the chapel, 
flanked on each side by large wings 
with broad, shady verandas. One wing 
housed the residence quarters for the 
superintendent and his family. Here 
my grandfather remained until his 
death fourteen years later, without 
compensation other than his mainte- 
nance, each year being asked if he 
would stay one more year until the 
directors could find the right man 
for the job. My mother and father 
were married in the orphanage chapel 
with the orphans as guests. Is it any 
wonder that the only career I ever 
thought of embarking upon was to 
have an orphanage.' 

I never got my orphanage. We did 
have six children of our own and I 
am thankful that they were not or- 
phaned. A husband, six children, one 
by one, and a large home do not con- 
stitute a job in the- usual sense of 
the word, but it was a job for me and 
I worked at it. It is more work for 
young mothers now than when I first 
had a family. Help was more plenti- 
ful and hours of work were longer. 
I have read that modern technology 
has made a woman's place in the 
home the loneliest place there is. 
She has many mechanical aids to help 
her, but few or no human ones. On 
the other hand, she has gained a tre- 
mendous amount of independence 



and self-reliance. And I sincerely be- 
lieve that if a home and a family are 
what you want, you have something 
worth working for. 

Our children at a very early age 
were aware of the path that I had 
chosen for life. At a family dinner my 
uncle asked Elizabeth, age four, what 
she was going to be when she grew 
up. Without hesitation she replied, 
"I'm going to be a doctor like Daddy 
and go to the Hospital every day." 
Whereupon Julia, aged two and a 
half, immediately piped up, "I'm going 
to be nobody, like Mother, and stay 
home with the children!" 

Normally, that is what a non-career 
woman does: she stays at home. Ac- 
tually, the amount of time she spends 
at home, depends largely on her own 
interests, her willingness to become 
involved, and the exacting limitations 
which time puts upon everyone these 
days. 

The number of interests a non-ca- 
reer woman may have is almost limit- 
less. Let me indicate briefly the variety 
of activities in which she may engage. 
Many women concern themselves very 
actively in church work. Numerous 
boards, such as the public library, wel- 
fare, hospital and hospital auxiliary, 
the Y.W.C.A., the Salvation Army, 
Family Service, Child Care Centers, 
and adoptive agencies make good use 
of women members. Two non-career 
women and one woman with a career 
serve on the board of trustees of Duke 
University. Women fill places on 
other educational boards such as the 
Durham county and city school boards, 
the boards of private schools, and the 
visitors committees in some colleges 
and universities. There are organiza- 
tions statewide in their range which 
appeal to women, such as the North 
Carolina Art Society and the North 
Carolina Symphony Society, Women 



work as volunteers in many estab- 
lished agencies. In any community you 
will find similar opportunities for 
service. Cultural organizations, such as 
Allied Arts, the Durham Savoyards, 
and Civic Choral Group, and the 
Durham Theater Guild offer outlets 
for talent and work in the field of arts. 
I do not mean to intimate that the 
non-career woman does all of these 
things or does any of them better than 
her sister with a career. It is a fact 
that the more one does well, the more 
one realizes that choices must be made. 
This puts the career woman in a slight- 
ly better position. Obviously, having 
definite commitments upon her time, 
it seems to me she might be better 
able to select the outside activities 
which would have the greatest value to 
her. 

The advantage a non-career woman 
has in this respect is that she does not 
do all of these things at the same 
time. In her younger years she has 
the opportunity of becoming ac- 
quainted with her city and its needs 
by being asked, as most young wo- 
men are, to work on various civic 
projects and United Fund drives. From 
this steppmg-stone she perhaps singles 
out one group to which she wishes 
to give more volunteer time. This is 
particularly true as her own children 
reach the ages of participating in 
group activities. It is then that non- 
career women find time to be den 
mothers and Brownie and Girl Scout 
troop leaders; that they are grade 
mothers and take active parts in 
P.T.A.'s; that they help with Y- 
Teen programs in the Y.W.C.A. and 
chauffeur children to endless music 
lessons, dance classes, field trips to 
museums and other places of local 
interest, and carloads to athletic events. 

There are all manner of delightful 
occupations for the woman whose time 
is her own. Bridge, golf, sewing, knit-

MARY HART 
Six children but no orphanage 



ting, gardening, reading, keeping up a 
correspondence, music, cooking, pic- 
nics, even bird watching! 

Recently I met a seventy-year-old 
friend who has just retired from a life- 
time career in business. She sees no 
prospect of boredom in her newly ac- 
quired freedom. Rather, she looks for- 
ward with joyful anticipation to the 
years ahead in which she hopes to read 
all the books, try all the new recipes, 
do all the things she has put off until 
now. Dean Alice Baldwin, in telling 
of her interest in refinishing furniture, 
expressed it this way: "Everything I 
learn is grist to the mill for me." 

The person who gives a good deal 
of time to pursuing one or more of 
the activities I have mentioned finds 
herself very knowledgeable and pro- 
ficient in the art she has chosen. None 
of these has been followed by such 
singleness of purpose by me. I am an 
amateur gardener, musician, and bird 
watcher. 

Bird watching demands a tremen- 
dous amount of time at home and lots 
of it looking out the window. We have 
fed the birds in our yard almost since 
we have had a yard. My family al- 
ways knew when a blue bird had made 
a rare visit to our bird bath or to the 
tree right outside the kitchen door be- 
cause that was the most important 
event in the day. Probably the only 
time my children ever saw me com- 
pletely speechless was the time their 
backs were to the window and I was 
trying to call their attention to the 
first evening grossbeaks' ever to come 
to our feeder. They looked so startled 
I am sure that they thought I was 
choking on something I had eaten, but 



I was so thrilled the words simply 
would not come from my lips. 

I did not have to confine myself to 
watching birds out-of-doors. One 
morning several years ago, Bill and 
Margaret, our youngest children, 
seemed very much excited about some- 
thing at the breakfast table. I could 
not persuade them to tell me anything 
at all until I had promised faithfully 
to respect their confidence and to do 
nothing to change the status quo of 
their great secret. Then, when it was 
too late, I learned that Bill, who oc- 
cupied a room at the far end of our 
third floor, had removed and left out 
a screen from one of his windows. 
That morning when he awoke and be- 
fore he opened his eyes, the thought 
crossed his mind that spring must have 
come, the birds sounded so near. When 
he did open his eyes he found there 
were a pair right in the room with 
him, building a nest in the corner of 
a bookshelf. A promise given must be 
kept, so for several weeks we had to 
leave Bill's room open to the elements, 
waste some of our precious oil fuel, 
and keep up at first hand with what 
happened in the bird world. The moth- 
er bird laid four eggs in the nest, sat 
on and hatched them. There was great 
joy over the tiny birdlings. They stayed 
in the nest until they were old enough 
to venture from there to Bill's dress- 
er or desk. Then came a wonderful 
day ( for me anyway ) when they flew 
outside the window onto a broad 
ledge. In a matter of hours almost after 
that, they all left our home and went 
out into the world. We put the 
screen back in, but it was several years 
and with a new tenant in the room 
before we had the heart to disturb 
the nest. 

I don't think that birds would live 
with just anyone, but Bill seems to 
have a strong affinity with them. It 
is he who knows where the bird nests 
are, and especially the nests with eggs. 
He is the one who took me and two 
grandsons out in the yard one day, 
stationed us where we could see a tall 
tree with a round hole near the top. 
Then as we watched, he tapped on the 
tree trunk and to the delight and won- 
derment of two small boys and their 
"nana," a red-headed flicker would ap- 
pear in the hole, fly a short distance 
away, fly back and disappear in the 
hole. 

I have mentioned gardening as 
being one of my interests. To be a 
successful gardener you must be a 
participant. You can participate, how- 



ever, and not be such a great success! 
■Very little in the way of plants and 
flowers has been added to our yard in 
the thirty-three years we have lived 
in our home, but almost any day 
from early spring until late fall offers 
an excellent opportunity to take a 
rambling walk with one or more of 
the children and have a nice visit 
while doing so. We know the ground 
thoroughly. In the spring each daffodil 
is an old friend and each pansy a 
friendly face. The roses are known 
to me by name. The brick-walled 
sand pile was built almost as soon as 
the house was and many a penny in a 
frog house there has miraculously 
turned to a stick of chewing gum dur- 
ing nap-time. Actually the sand pile 
itself turned into an altar for our sec- 
ond daughter's wedding nine years 
ago! The yard, or the premises, as my 
uncle used to call it, has been a source 
of great pleasure for us as a family, 
although to be honest, tending the gar- 
den has been the smallest part. I am 
walking now with the third generation 
and hoping that one of my grandsons 
may decide to be a landscape architect, 
a horticulturist, or maybe a florist. To 
that end I was pleased when one little 
boy said to me, "Nana, what is that 
flower on your coat?" "An anemone, 
Charles," I answered. "Can you say 
anemone?" He looked at me very in- 
tently and I could see his mind work- 
ing to form the word. "Anemone," I 
said again. Without taking his eyes 
from .mine he answered very seriously, 
"Petunia." 

The love of music has always been 
present in my family. We have never 
boasted a real musician but we have 
often been told of my gay and exuber- 
ant Aunt Mary who was able with her 
piano playing to charm into reason an 
older and depressed neighbor. My 
father had a fine baritone voice and 
delighted in singing and in gathering 
about him people of like temperament 
so that many evenings in my parent's 
home turned into musicales. I do not 
know that their taste in music was very 
lofty, I think it ran more to the Gilbert 
and Sullivan variety, but that there 
was music there is no doubt. 

I had high hopes for our first son 
who at age two when he did not want 
to do as I wished, would answer "my 
singing!" indicating an achievement 
too notable to interrupt. There is an 
incident concerning my mother which 
to me illustrates the musicality of our 
family. Perhaps many readers are fa- 
miliar with an old fashioned music 
box. Such an instrument was given to 



my grandparents by Mr. and Mrs. 
B. N. Duke at the time of my mo- 
ther's marriage to take her place in 
their home when she had gone. I felt 
the silence kneely when our daugh- 
ters were married and there was no 
one left to practice or play the piano. 

Our favorite form of family recrea- 
tion is to go on a picnic. It is no myth 
that food tastes better out of doors. 
The children are freer and happier, 
parents are more relaxed, clean up is 
kept to a minimum, and there is al- 
ways room for one more. Often we 
have gone no farther than out our own 
back door to the terrace around one 
end of our home. The Blue Ridge 
mountains, where we spend our sum- 
mer vacations, have provided a mag- 
nificent panorama for countless out- 
ings. The weather does not deter us — 
everything but our enthusiasm has 
been thoroughly drenched at times. 
The youngest child used to be car- 
ried in a basket, not the picnic hamper, 
but one as easily transportable. Pic- 
nics can be planned to the last grain 
of salt, or as the case is sometimes, we 
leave home with nothing and along 
the way accumulate crackers, a large 
wedge of cheese, some canned sardines, 
fruit and cold drinks, plus a ravenous 
appetite. 

On one occasion when my sister 
and I were returning from a picnic on 
which we had taken seven children in 
a very small car, my son John, about 
two and a half, said, "I've got a hole 
in my pocket." "That's all right, John, 
I reassured him. "We'll fix it when we 
get home." "But my frog got out," 
answered John. Just at that moment a 
frog did take a mighty leap from the 
floor-board of the car. My sister and 
I shrieked and she stopped the car 
right in the middle of a busy street 
until we could eject John's frog. 

In order not to paint too idyllic a 
picture, it must be said that certain 
drawbacks are concomitant with a 
large family. Just before the birth of 
our fifth child, as help diminished and 
our family increased, I found myself 
not only with four children, but also a 
large vegetable garden, two cows, 100 
laying hens, and about twenty-five 
turkeys. This, of course, was our war 
effort, begun in 1943 but continued 
for many years longer because we en- 
joyed it. I did not have to milk the 
cows but we pasturized the milk and 
canned the surplus food. When the 
hens began laying at peak production 
we had to sell the extra eggs, and be- 
ginning with out third child the egg 

35 



r 



business was passed down from one 
child to the next, through four chil- 
dren. Living where we did, we had to 
deliver the eggs by car, and that was 
a chauffeuring job none of my friends 
had. Each child eagerly awaited his or 
her opportunity to manage the busi- 
ness, which meant feeding and water- 
ing the hens before school, gathering, 
grading and packaging eggs, and keep- 
ing books. We should have been able 
to educate the last of our four children 
on the profits of the egg business, but 
we ate them all up. A dozen eggs and 
almost a pound of bacon was daily fare 
at our breakfast table. 

Then there was the problem of be- 
longing to five different Parent Teach- 
er Associations in one year. That only 
required, on the average, one after- 
noon or night a month for each, but 
five days a week five children had to 
be taken to five different schools and 
brought home again. Occasionally we 
were in car pools, but actually we con- 
stituted a car pool by ourselves, and 
our children outlasted those of our 
friends and neighbors. You can see 
what a problem of logistics we had. 

Then consider the matter of the 
laundry. Seven times six is forty-two 
pairs of socks in the wash each week, 
not counting my husband's, which 
were easily identifiable. I hit upon the 
scheme of sewing one initial in the 
back of each sock, E for Elizabeth, / 
for Julia, D for Deryl, and so on. 
About the time the socks were marked, 
the children had grown so that E's 
socks fit /, y's fit D, D's fit M, and on 
down the line. The importance of the 
laundry in my life, however, cannot be 
over-estimated. Everyone is aware of 
the necessity of keeping lines of com- 
munication open, and when ail else 
failed, I could fall back on the laundry 
line. My husband and children are 
alike in that they have a quick wit and 
ready repartee, and I have been a 
charmed and amused bystander many 
times when they kept the conversa- 
tional ball jumping from one to the 
other. Never have I had a ready an- 
swer, and if I thought of one at all, it 
was twenty-four hours late. So it was 
when one of our sons asked me once 
if I had seen his birth certificate re- 
cently — gently reminding me that 
he was not only free of the umbilical 
cord but also the apron strings. It was 
not until the next day that I thought 
of the perfect retort, "Well, you 
haven't cut the laundry line!" 

These relatively minor problems can 
be duplicated witli slight variations 
36 



in any large family. The very size of 
the family brings on most of them. I 
shall not belabor the matter of time, 
or lack of it, because that is common 
to all. The frustration which I found 
to be insurmountable was that I could 
not be all things to all people, mean- 
ing of course, my husband and chil- 
dren. It is impossible today, as per- 
haps it has always been, to give of 
yourself in as undivided and concen- 
trated a manner as you would wish. 
My husband has expressed his phi- 
losophy of life in these words: "Set 
your goal high, if you think you can 
do it, and finish what you start." I 
share his sentiment in theory, but in 
practice I have never finished anything 
in either the time I allotted to it or the 
manner in which I intended to do it. 
My life has been a series of compro- 
mises, a sort of household robbing 
husband to pay children, or robbing 
children to pay society. This has re- 
sulted in uneasy feelings of guilt and 
inner awareness that I am not a big 
enough person for the job. I am not 
naive enough, however, to think that I 
am the only person who at times ex- 
periences a sense of inadequacy for 
his job. In any case, I have been too 
busy to brood about it. 

I hope from these reminiscences 
that I have been able to convey some 
of the joys, frustrations, and rewards 
of a woman with no job other than a 
home and family. 

Now that my husband and I are 
back where we started, just the two 
of us, I can speak from the vantage 
point of age and experience. The 
formal education of our children is 
almost complete, and now they must 
go on with the process of self-edu- 
cation, which is life-long. We shall 
take tremendcftis pleasure in any hap- 
piness and success which comes to 
them. 

My aunt once asked me what I 
thought of myself with all our chil- 
dren. My answer was one word — 
"Blessed." These blessings have a way 
of multiplying rapidly, and now we 
have the great joy and none of the 
responsibility of eight lively grand- 
children. It will be a happy privilege 
to watch these children grow up and 
see the direction their lives will take. 

When she was a very little girl, our 
daughter Margaret asked a friend of 
mine the name of the car parked next 
to ours. The friend answered, "That 
is a Chevrolet de luxe." After a few 
moments thought, Margaret said, "I 



know what good lux is and I know 
what bad lux is, but I don't know what 
de lux is!" As a family we have 
known much good lux, very little bad 
lux, and I'm not sure that we know 
what de lux is! I can say with the 
Psalmist of old, "The lines are fallen 
unto me in pleasant places, yea I have 
a goodly heritage."

Marines, stationed at Cherry Point. 

Margaret Kempton Kelly and Roy have 2 girls and 

2 boys and 2 granddaughters, ages 2 years and 3 months. 
Kemp is currently serving as President of the Women of

chaperoning her teenagers at the beach reunion weekend. 
Frances Harrison Malcolm is manager of the Arts 
and Crafts Association in Winston and is a circle leader 
in Home Moravian Church. She has one girl, two boys, 
and two grandchildren — a 9 months old boy and a

Catherine's in June and will enter UNC in September. 

Ann Reid Miller also lives in Spartanburg, where 
her husband is an industrial engineer with Gulf Oil. Their 
21 year old son attends Rochester Institute of Technology, 
is an accomplished photographer, and won a trip to the 
International Science Fair in Dallas in 1966. Ann spends 
part of her time in club and church work and has worked 
with Junior Garden Club members at the School for the 
Deaf and Blind. Carolyn West Lacy is living in Front 
Royal, Va., where husband Ben is an orchardist. Daughter 
Emma graduated from Peace in June and is going to Lynch- 
burg College in the fall. Son Ben was a freshman at David- 
son this year. Carolyn is active in church work in her com- 
munity. 

We saw Augusta Garth at reunion, and she reported 
that V. V. and Jimmy Edwards' son Jimmy was also a fresh- 
man at Davidson this year. Eaton Seville was also there, 
and she told us Aileen and her family are now living at 
Daytona Beach. 

Hope to see more of you before too long. Let's not wait 
five years. We can get together other places besides Salem. 
The Charlotte girls are already hatching up something for 
the future. What about a trip to New York- — My best 
to you all, Doris C. 



CLASS OF 1914 

(Continued from Page 9) 

Seven of our class from Winston-Salem attended. Mar- 
garet Blair McCuiston, 3rd vice-president of the 
Alumnae Association, did fine work in preparing the Re- 
port on changes in the Constitution and By-Laws which 
she submitted at the meeting. LuCY Hadley Cash was 
spokesman for our class at the luncheon. 

Helen Vogler, our new president, was planning a 
trip to New York in June to attend the Moravian Music 
Festival. In August she will join a group of Moravians 
on a trip to the Mission Fields in South America. Nellie 
Messick Moore, who in her senior year at Salem, dreamed 
of a pink carnation wedding, today lives with her surgeon 
husband, and they enjoy their five wonderful grand- 
children. 

Ethel McGalliArd is still teaching piano. ETHEL 
HANES Reich still lives on Old Salisbury Road in the big 
farm house in which she grew up. CATHERINE Spach 
Bynum, wearing a pink ensemble, gave the impression of 
one who has found the Fountain of Youth. 

The following classmates, unable to be present, sent 
us news: 

Frances Brown Conti is still employed as a social 
worker in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Maud Kerner Ring, 
wrote from Kernersville that she would be with us in 
spirit but did not feel equal to the trip. Annie Wilkin- 
son Bean, Rocky Mount, N. C, has been a shut-in for 
six months with a broken hip, but she gets about now with 
a walker. 

Mabel Lancaster Glenn, our basketball star in col- 
lege, sent her love to all from Lakeland, Florida. Velma 
Martin Burrus wrote that company, coming to visit her 
at the time of our reunion, would keep her at home in 
Shelby. Laura Ridenhour Gibson, Concord, has recover- 
ed from having Hong Kong flu three times last winter, and 
is headed for Columbus, Georgia, to visit her daughter liv- 
ing in a new home. She asks for news of Annie Lee Gris- 
SOM Offen. 

Gladys Grant Harris, Morristown, Tennessee, sent 
best wishes to everybody. She was preparing to visit a 
Kansas relative. She wishes Mary Nicholson Wolfe, 
Kingston, Pennsylvania to get in touch with her. Annie Lee 
and Mary, please write also to your correspondent. 
Blanche Cox Walker, Asheboro, says she often thinks 
of our wonderful Golden Reunion. She planned to go to 
Pennsylvania at the time of the Alumnae luncheon. MARY 
TL'RNER Willis, New Bern, spent the winter in Chapel 
Hill with daughter. Dr. Mary Turner Lane. She sends love 
to all the gang. In return to Mary our sympathy for her

and Helen Brooks Millis, High Point, sent best wishes 
to ail, and regrets at missing the fun of our 55th reunion. 
Bess Hyman Guion, New Bern, was helping prepare for 
her second granddaughter's wedding on June 21st. Pattie 
WOMACK Fetzer has had surgery and was in a Twin 
City hospital June 7th. She is now recovering nicely at 
home. 

39 



We paid tribute to the memory of the thirteen mem- 
bers who have died, out of our class of forty-five. 

Thanks to Margaret, Lucy, Hope, others for much 
ground work done for our reunion June 7th. Best wishes 
to the class of '69, the largest graduating class ever, one 
hundred twenty-two noble young women! 

Please, all of you, especially those who did not attend 
and did not write, send me news before my deadline of 
October 1 for the fall Bulletin. 



CLASS OF 1939

be here. She had to leave to catch her plane back before the 
picture was taken. She has four children. The oldest one is 
married and is in dental school. Josephine Hutchison 
FiTTS has joined the few of you who are grandmothers. 
( We should check up on these in the next issue. ) Agnes 
has a son four weeks old as of this date. Burton is in Viet 
Nam flying cargo planes. 

We read notes from many who regretted they could 
not be with us. Many had to attend graduation exercises 
of their children. Catherine Brandon Weidner reports 
one son has been discharged from the Army after three 
years, another in Viet Nam who was married last August. 
Her oldest daughter is married and the next one working 
in Bethlehem, Pa. One of the last two is graduating from 
Moravian Prep School this week-end. Maude Battle 
Johnson's older son is graduating from high school. 
Mary Thomas Fleury's son John is graduating from 
Darlington School. 

Dorothy Baugham Elliott sent special wishes for a 
good reunion. She says she sees Jinny Lee Cowper Cun- 
ningham, Ann Johnson Whitehurst, Frances Still- 
man, Betsy Fearing Gilliam and others at the Green- 
ville Salem Alumnae meetings. Mary Carlton Schofield 
reports her son John was recently installed as president of 
the student body at East Caiolina University and that 
granddaughter Heather Carlton Schofield arrived in the 
spring. Josephine Rand Westerfield and family have 
recently moved to Greensboro, N. C. One daughter attends 
Averett College and the other is married and living in 
Pensacola, Florida. BETSY Fearing Gilliam's daughter 
graduated at Salem (but we did not see Betsy.) Virginia 
Taylor Calhoun is living in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her 
daughter is getting married in June. 

Emma Brown Grantham Willis was too far away 
and too involved with her family to make it to reunion. 
She has four children: Heide, twenty, completing second 
year at the University of Vermont, sings, and has had a 
European tour with a Boston Choral group. She and her 
sister Reid, freshman at Wheaton College, will work at a 
camp for underprivileged children this summer. Reid had 
a trip to Germany as an AFS-er. Caroline, fourteen, will 
enter high school and Janie, 4th grade. 

Mary Grier Kenner, after four children (three of 
whom are married) and four grandchildren, has gone back 
to college to get the degree she did not get with us. She 
says her children are quite proud of her — and we are too. 

Sara Cole Alexander reports that her son David 
got home safely from Viet Nam. Daughter Sara went to 
UNC-G and is working in Charlotte. Troy is a freshman 
at Winthrop. Hannah Teichman Daniels is teaching 
music in the East Islip, Long Island schools and busy re- 
doing the old coach house she and Danny bought last year. 
40 



Frances Stillman had a letter from Katherine Snead 
Knight which she shared with us. She has kept up her 
piano and interest in the arts and has just been elected 
president of the local art association in Muscle Shoals, Ala- 
bama. Katherine's only son died in infancy and her hus- 
band about eight years ago. She sent best wishes to all 
the '39-ers. 

And I send best wishes to all the '39-efs also and urge 
you to cooperate by sending news to your new correspon- 
dent, Kate. 



CLASS OF 1954 

(Continued from Page 12) 
We send our sympathy to you and your family. Patsy. 

Our eastern-most classmate was Anne Moye Mayo, 
who was getting ready to send a daughter to Camp Yonah- 
lossee. She and Ben won't be lonesome with two other 
girls and a boy at home in Tarboro, and a new house 
under construction. ALICE McNeely Herring and Ralph 
are busy with three sons in MooresviUe. Alice showed us 
the portrait of Mrs. Amy Heidbreder that Ralph painted, 
which hangs in Clewell, and it is truly lovely. We were 
saddened by the news of Mrs. Heidbreder's death, par- 
ticularly so soon after a happy re-marriage. 

Cackie Post Connelly and Jim came from Atlanta 
for the weekend. They have a 15 -year old daughter and 
three younger sons. Her address is 925 Landmark Drive. 
Having recently moved from Atlanta, Betty McGlaug- 
HON drove over from Kingsport. "Boop" is working for 
Eastman Kodak. 

Joining us for dinner were Anne Merritt Snap? of 
Roanoke and Gray Sydnor Haynes of Winston-Salem. 
Gray has five children, the oldest a 17-year-old girl. For 
those of you who never knew Gray, she attended Salem 
one year. After she had her family, she graduated from 
Wake Forest and now teaches in a junior high school. It 
is unbelievable that she looks the same. 

From High Point came Edith Flagler Ruth and 
your correspondent. Edith has a son and daughter to keep 
her busy, and leaves most of the music to husband Barry. 
Bob and I watch in awe as our four children grow up be- 
fore our eyes. 

We read letteis from two other classmates. PHYLLIS 
Forrest Sinclair and Jim have moved to Fayetteville 
from Raeford, after years of Jim's commuting between 
the two towns to teach business administration at Fayette- 
ville Tech. Their daughters are 7, 5, and 1. (New address: 
324 Pinecrest Drive, 28305.) 

Betsy' Forrest Jones, who was supposed to leave on 
June 12 for a 10-week camping trip through Europe with 
her husband and five children, unfortunately has had to 
postpone the trip. Her husband Joe has hepatitis and will 
be housebound for six to ten weeks. Betsy writes: "It's a 
good thing Joe had planned to take the summer off. In- 
stead of basking in the sun on the Mediterranean he'll be 
recuperating at home by the Atlantic." 

We extend our sympathy to Anne Moye Mayo, who 
lost her mother in February, and to Lu Long Ogburn 
Medlin, whose father passed away in March. 

The only thing that could have made our 15th re- 
union better would have been having you there! It was a 
great day. 

Be sure to send me that chain letter before October \. 



speaker Stresses Importance of the Humanist 



Barnaby C. Keeney, Chairman of the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities, stressed to the 122 graduates of 
1969 the importance of the humanist, who as "the cus- 
todian of values . . . must bring his understanding to bear 
on what is the best course for society." 

Keeney, the nephew of Alice Keeney Rondthaler, '43, 
daughter-in-law of the late President Rondthaler, is a 
former president of Brown University. 

Keeney indicated that the importance of the humanist 
lies in areas significant to him, such as "a search for mean- 
ing," and the use of knowledge for the "solution of prob- 
lems." Although he pointed out the difficulty of an exact 
definition, he said "I like to think of the humanist as one 
who studies the past in order to understand the present 
and perhaps to illuminate . . . the future." 



Problems arising from advances in modern medicine, 
campus unrest, and urban decay he cited as in need of 
illumination and solution from the knowledge of the hu- 
manist. He added that the most important problem was 
the constant re-examination of the "body of assumptions 
on which society is built." 

In conclusion Keeney said, "The great mission of the 
humanist is to attempt to achieve truth that will endure, 
but it will rarely be simple ... He must not fall into the 
extreme of the emotional seeker after good who ignores the 
facts, nor must he fall into the other and more traditional 
stream of the resident of the ivory tower, he who ignores 
life and regards his facts as unimportant, irrelevant to 
anything that has not yet happened, and indeed soiled by 
contact with the present. Long ago Socrates said, 'The un- 
examined life is not worth living.' He might better have 
said, 'The unlived life is not worth examining'." 



Alumna 
Publishes Book 



Dell Norfleet, '20, is the author of a recently pub- 
lished book, Motor Concepts in Muscle Training. Workers 
in the field of rehabilitation, including physicians and 
therapists, will be especially interested in this timely and 
authoritative book. 

Dell has been for many years a worker and writer 
in this field. 

Of the book the author says: 



To readers interested in the rehabilitation 
program, we direct a systematic exposition of 
orthopedics in application to the growing and 
developing child. This is the story of the pre- 
vention and correction of structural deformity 
... a child can become structurally sound only 
through natural development processes, which 
may be used as a basis for corrective or preven- 
tive therapy through exercise. 



One critic says; "The challenging field of rehabilita- 
tion in childhood ... is given illuminating coverage in this 
book,"

CLASS OF 1955 

(Continued from Page 13) 

Maybe one of these days! They were heading down to 
Morehead the next week-end, and we are all planning an- 
other get together. 

Also from Raleigh were Emily Hall Bigger and Bill. 
They have two sons, and Bill has a consultant engineering 
firm there. I think Emily and Bill were the only ones with 
little or no grey hairs. 

Betty Lynn Wilson Robinson and Phil were back 
and forth from Rural Hall. They both looked wonderful, 
and had done such a fine job planning the Saturday night 
dinner. They have four children and are busy in church 
and community jobs. They all enjoy their home at More- 
head. 

On Saturday evening our class, plus the classes of '54, 
'56 and '59 had a dinner at the Twin City Club. It was a 
lovely evening, with an excellent buffet and a good combo, 
that played "our kind of music." It was nice seeing our 
old drug store friend, Tom Perry again. He manages the 
Twin City Club, and he really treated us royally. 

Later we moved poolside at the motel, where we remi- 
nisced until the "wee hours." After a leisurely breakfast 
Sunday morning, we all packed up and headed for chil- 
dren and home. I think as Alumnae returning, we have an 
even better time, than we had as students, if that is pos- 
sible. We will meet again in 1972, which will be our last 
one before we hit forty. So start planning now. 

Jim and I left Salem and picked up our three, who 
were with their grandparents in Charlotte. We stopped at 
my mother's, who is now in Smithfield with my brother 
and his family — and now are spending a week at More- 
head. In writing this report, I feel like the time a lot of 
us went to Louise's here at the beach to study for exams, 
and the job wasn't done too well. It's hard to concentrate 
with the sun, sand and sea. 

Betty Lynn and I are staying on in our class jobs. As 
Fund Agent, Lynn has done an excellent job — our class 
had a very good showing. Many thanks to those who wrote 
letters for Lynn — several said they heard from Ann 
Edwards every other day until they finally sent their con- 
tribution in! Good work, Ann. 

I will continue as Class President and Correspondent, 
and plans are already starting on our next reunion. I will 
use the letters and notes that so many of you sent, for the 
Fall Bulletin. By then we should have excuses from the 
Revelles, DeLoaches, Fagons and Pritchards, as to why 
they didn't show up. 

Miss Byrd did a wonderful job on Alumnae Day, and 
we all enjoyed seeing her again. 

It was so good seeing the Gramleys, Dr. Hixon, Miss 
Covington, Mrs. Starr, Mrs. Scott, Mr. Curlee and Miss 
Roberts. Time seems to stand still — no one has changed. 

Please read the other class reports for a fuller picture 
of what went on that can be printed. For the unprintable, 
you'll just have to come and see for yourself next time. 

The rest of my news will have to wait until the next 
issue because the sun is bright, and I have to get out on 
the beach.

She will teach fashion merchandising in Charlotte in the 
fall. 

So many of you at the reunion asked about Margaret 
MacQueen Grayson, and I am happy to report that we 
spent an hour or so together at the pool this morning. 
She and Dick and the children joined some of her family 
in Panama City for a few days last week and left Selma 
today for Houston where Dick has one more year of resi- 
dency. She looks grand and is the same delightful Margaret. 
All of the children (even Dickie, age 3), are swimming 
and are so lively and cute. 

My family is about to embark on a small reunion 
of its own. My sister and her children are coming from 
Michigan, and we are going to the Alabama Coast with 
my parents. My brother and his wife can't join us, so 
they are sending their small son. Somehow I have the 
feeling that they are the ones going on the vacation! 

Frankie Cuningham married Jon Marshall Nobert 
on June 27 in Studio City, California. 

I hope this summer will be grand for all of you and 
will generate lots of news for the next Bulletin. Judging 
from what I saw at the reunion we'll have more babies 
to report next time! 

If you forgot to order your class picture, send $2 to 
the Alumnae Office before September 1. 



CLASS OF 1964 



(Continued from Page 30) 

Jan Horner Rainero and Leno are in Bristol, 
"Virginia, where she has taught 4th grade for several years. 
Retirement is at hand, however, because they are expecting 
a baby in late October. 

Becky Gaston Kirkman and Kirky were joined 
by Mary Ruth Kirkman on November 29, 1968. I have 
to brag on Becky, who was reported to have gained V2 
pound! They are in Statesville. 

I know you join me in extending sympathy to 
Marguerite and Aurelia, both of whom have recently 
lost their fathers. 

Others at the reunion, but who reported no startling 
news, were: LiNDA WiLSON 'RiCKELS. Elaine Tayloe 
Kirkland, Susie Robinson Mote, Susan Martin, 
Betsy Johnson McLean, Frances Holton Noah, 
Suzanne Forbes Howard, Gin Gray Green, Aurelia 
Robertson Smith. Nancy Lytle Hutchins, Ann 
Stafford Buchanan, Ann Marie Martin Smith, 
Becky Newsome Clingman, Margy Harris Holt, and 
Ann P. Austin. 

Now, if you're still with me, I'll report on those who 
were talked about and weren't there to affirm or deny. I 
hope it's all accurate; if not, you'll have to be there for 
sure next time to make sure things stay accurate. 

Tillie Strickland married Ben Willis on Reunion 
Day, June 7, and will live in Baltimore, Maryland. 

Claudia Crawford Fleming and Gary, who is with 
Wachovia Bank, now live in Winston. 

Alice Reid Digilio and Trudi Schmidt Knoeller 
live in Alexandria, so Jackie brought us up to date on them. 
Reports are that both live in "Old Town" and are doing 
over old houses. Jackie says Trudi's little girl, Anne Ross, 
is a darling. 



Pat Lee Jenkins and John have a new baby girl. 

Mary Jane Harrell (McKnight) has a long year 
coming up, with Larry leaving in June for Vietnam. M. J. 
will be living in Jacksonville, Fla., with her parents, and 
a new baby coming in September will help to pass the 
time. 

Mary May Brown and Lester are in Greenville, 
N. C, where he is finishing at E. C. U. They are expecting 
in July. 

A new address for Mary TenEyck Voorhees (Mrs. 
Robert E.) — 3117 W. 2nd St., Wilmington, Delaware 
19805. 

A note from Jane Hanling Shavender (Mrs. 
Frank) says, "Frank and I plan to stay in Charleston four

(Address: 737 CoUette Drive, Charleston, S. C. 29407). 

Anne Romig Decker and Jim have a new address — 
7 Ferncliff Rd., Morris Plains, N. J. 07950, and a new 
son, John Sperry Decker. 

Mary Alice Teague Gibbs reports from Richmond, 
"I have retired from teaching to run after our year-old 
son Jamie. He keeps me quite busy as does our lovely 
garden. Jim is in his second year residency in Internal 
Medicine at M.C.V. and seems to work constantly!" 

Lynne Morrison Bradley writes, "Doesn't anyone 
come to New Jersey? We are quite centrally located and 
would be delighted to see any Alumnae heading North or 
South. Two years ago Bob gave up the 9 to 5 routine to 
become a commercial fisherman and is quite happy. We 
have 2 children (Chris, 5, and Debbie, 4) and a 65 
pound Labrador! I love to read the alumnae news, full of 
such exciting careers and family news." 

Nancy Knott Manthey and husband Bob happily 
announce the birth of their first child, Keith Weldon, 
born March 11. The Mantheys are still living in Friendship, 
Maryland, where Bob is completing his second year in 
the Methodist Church. 

Susie Johnson Stovall writes, "We have a 6-month 
old daughter, Suzanne. What a joy she is and how busy 
mother stays!" 

Jerrine Fuller Manders writes, "I will graduate 
from the U. of Ala. this May, with a B.A. in English. I 
still plan to continue teaching piano, however." 

From Wanda Cevarich Petrasy comes word that 
they are out of the Army and heading for Norfolk, Va., 
for a dental practice. 

Anne Simons Straughan wrote from Englewood, 
N. J., to inquire about starting a Salem Alumnae Chapter 
in the N. Y. area. Sounds as if, you could find quite a few 
from '64 alone in that area. 

G. G. Monk Wells wrote from Norfolk that she 
and Warner are expecting a baby in July. Also, "I see 
Susan Feagan Acree who is also in Norfolk with the 
Navy quite often." 

Marty Richmond Minor wrote to report the arrival 
of Mary Berkeley Wilson on August 25, 1968. 

Wookie Workman Payne, in Davidson visiting 
recently, reports that she is a programmer for Phillip 
Morris in Richmond, while husband Tom is a stock broker 
with J. C. Wheat. They live outside Richmond, where 
Tom can pursue his hobby — horses — and Wookie 
reports that she's learning to stay on and even do a little 
jumping! She says they have plenty of room and welcome 
any visitors. 

Mary Jackson Pohl writes from Alexandria that 
husband Jim teaches French and coaches wrestling in high 
school there. They spent Christmas in Acapuluco! She 



works with the mentally retarded (ages 5 to 35) and says, 
"It was close to being overwhelming at first; now, exhilar- 
ating." 

A new address for Boo BEST: 411 South Pitt Street,

aboard a Polaris submarine. 

New address for Margaret Hagaman Sullivan 
(Mrs. Thomas A.) 14D, Sharon Heights, 850 Airport Rd., 
ChapelHill,N.C. 27514. 

A letter to Margy from Zena Strub Gilley reports 
that they are with Uncle Sam also (2702-A West Court, 
Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. 21005) and expect their 
first child early in September. 

Another fascinating letter to Margy was from Lynn 
Hall Kitchin who described travels in Europe courtesy 
of Uncle Sam (while Mills guarded the Czech border!), 
and now life in California while she waits for Mills' return 
from Vietnam early this summer. She reports that they 
are ready to leave their wandering life and be "gentlemen 
farmers in eastern N. C." Their address will be: 1723 N. 
Main Street, Scotland Neck, N. C 27874. 

Of course we missed our president Mason Kenx 
Harris at the reunion, who was kept busy by Wester 
Gerald Harris, Jr., who arrived March 9, plus settling into a 
new house. 

The grapevine reported that Jo Dunbar Faulmann 
is expecting a baby this summer. Please send details, Jo! 

I attended Frances Speas' wedding to Dr. Richard S. 
Ray on December 28 in Winston. Frances and Dick are 
living in Chapel Hill (Towne House Apts, Hillsborough 
Road), where Dick is director of the L.I.N.C. (Learning 
Institute of N. C. ) 

It was good to catch up with Madge Kempton 
Fleece while we were living in Durham. She and Dave 
have a darling baby boy, Jonathan, born in November, 
1967, and are expecting a second baby this fall. I won't 
include an address this time, because they were moving 
soon and it was indefinite. 

Margy reported at the Alumnae Luncheon that our class 
had produced teachers, housewives, secretaries, a lawyer, 
an actress, and 29 boys and 36 girls — after reading the 
above, I'm sure you believe it! Keep me posted!

Charo Soler, exchange student from Uruguay who had lived 
with her family this year, was leaving at that time. Betsy 
said it was a wonderful experience for all her family to 
have Charo in her home. Betsy is planning to bring her

In Memoriam 

Amy Heidbreder Bailey 

Salem's Dean of Students from 1950 to 1965, Mrs. Amy 
Heidbreder Bailey, died April 29 after an illness of sev- 
eral weeks. She had moved to Davidson in June, 1965, 
upon her marriage to Dr. John C. Bailey, Jr., a member

Oklahoma City University before coming to Salem. Her 
first husband, Ralph Heidbreder, died in 1945. She had 
one daughter, Mrs. Richard E. Copley of Vancouver, 
British Columbia. 

While at Salem, Mrs. Bailey instituted the Freshman 
Seminar, helped student organizations achieve improved 
financial records, and assisted in reorganization of Student 
Government, whereby the present type Judicial Board was 
formed. The class of 1958 honored her by presenting a 
portrait of her to the College. It hangs in Clewell domi- 
tory.

A SPECIAL THANKS 

The Alumnae Association and Salem College would like to pay a special thanks 
to Jess Byrd, '27, who so graciously gave of her time and energy this past year as Acting 
Alumnae Director. From December until August she worked with the same dedication 
to the affairs of fellow Alumnae that she showed to her students throughout her 
teaching career at Salem. 

Miss Byrd stepped into the position last winter at a busy time. Together with 
Delores Clarke and an enthusiastic team of Alumnae and students, she managed the 
most successful Alumnae Fund Campaign in Salem's history. For this, and for the many 
other facets of the job which she carried out smoothly and efficiently — we are grateful. 

This year, along with enjoying one of her favorite hobbies — golf — Miss Byrd 
will continue to serve as Chairman of the Alumnae Scholarships and Awards Committee 
and as a Class Agent for the 1969-70 Alumnae Fund Campaign. 

It has been my privilege to have Miss Byrd both as a professor and more recently 
as an advisor in Alumnae work. I know I speak for all of us in saying thank you.

IS SALEM RELEVANT? 



Presented by Dr. Inzer Byers, professor of history and chairman of the department of history of 
Salem College, on Founders' Day, October 10, 1969. Dr. Byers received her B. A. degree from 
Randolph-Macon and her M. A. and Ph.D. degrees from Radcliffe. 



In John Cheever's novel, Bullet Park, with its acidly 
humorous portrayal of modern-day suburban life, there 
is one particularly memorable scene. The wife, Nellie, is 
awakened one morning by the sound of gunfire. She im- 
mediately suspects the worst, namely that black militants 
have invaded the neighborhood. Looking out at the front 
lawn, she sees a far more extraordinary sight. There is her 
husband, Nailles, clad only in his underpants, firing his 
shotgun at an immense snapping turtle. Cheever describes 
the scene thus: 

The sun had not risen, but the sky was light, and 
in this pure and subtle light, the undressed man 
and the prehistoric turtle seemed engaged in 
some primordial and comical battle. Nailles raised 
his gun and fired at the turtle. The turtle re- 
coiled, collapsed, and then slowly raised itself 
up like a sea tortoise and began to lumber 
towards her husband. She had never seen outside 
a zoo so big a reptile, but it was Nailles, not the 
reptile who seemed out of place in the early light. 
It was the turtle's lawn, the turtle's sky, the 
turtle's creation, and Nailles seemed to have wan- 
dered mistakenly onto the scene. He fired again 
and missed. He fired again, and she saw the 
turtle's huge head swung to one side by the 
charge of buckshot. He fired again, put his gun 
on the grass and picked the turtle up by its 
jagged tail. 

Having dispatched the turtle, Nailles hurries upstairs 
to take the tranquillizer that has become necessary for 
him to face boarding the commuter's train. So much for 
the hundred year old turtle which happened to cross the 
lawn at the wrong time. 

As I began to consider Founders' Day, this scene on 
Nailles lawn recurred to me. If so much for the turtle 
which took a short cut at the wrong time, what about 
Salem College, which might be considered a 197 year old 
turtle? Is it too expendable? If encountered, should it be 
shot on sight? Or, to pose the question in the form in 
which it is most frequently encountered today: Is Salem 
Relevant? 

From certain perspectives, it is surprising that any- 
one would raise the question of relevance. The long- 
standing assumption about liberal arts institutions is that 
they embody a sort of set of "eternal verities," what any 
man at any time might consider crucial for being an 
educated person. If this is accepted, the demand for 
relevance is unnecessary, and perhaps an impertinence. 

The definition of a college also seems to preclude 
questions of relevance. A college is "A body of scholars or 
friends of learning, incorporated for study or instruction, 
especially in the higher branches of knowledge." According 
to this definition, what gives a college its reason for being 
is a common commitment to learning. Relevance to the 
environment then is at most an incidental by-product, 
and to judge a college's success or failure by standards of 
"relevance" is a meaningless test. 



Yet the question of relevance is being raised in the 
United States today, and the persistence and insistence 
with which it is being asked suggest that the word 
"relevance" really is a kind of code word implying some- 
thing is seriously amiss in American education. 

What kind of questions, then, lie behind the demand 
for relevance? 

For one thing, there seems to be present on Ameri- 
can campuses an attitude of questioning about the long- 
standing Western definition of reason and of the role 
of analytical reason as the means of ascertaining reality. 
In Western culture we have asked, what are the facts, 
the facts divorced from emotion and from personal interest. 
We have focused our attention on developing rational 
process by which one may determine not only facts, but 
trends and desired outcomes. We pride ourselves on 
objective, cognitive approaches. The truth, however, is 
that today for many young people both the conception 
of realism and the tool of analytical reason seem in- 
adequate — inadequate for perception and for action, 
ethical and political. As Michael Novak states it: 

The intellectual orientation, methods, attitude, 
style, standards and procedures that have governed 
academic life in America are considered too 
narrow, dogmatic, rigid, and above all, untrust- 
worthy by many of the best students. 

Instead of reason they may well invoke the insights of 
feeling, fantasy, imagination, myth. As Novak says. 
Consciousness "supplants" analytical reason as the basic 
category of inquiry. In part, the new attitude may stem 
from the painful, absurd, and mad experiences of the last 
decade. In part, it may stem from our enlargement of 
cultural horizons after World War II, with the resultant 
view of Western civilization as the civilization of a 
minority and with our encounter with other ways of per- 
ceiving reality. In any event, the challenge to the pre- 
vailing academic outlook is there. How significant the 
challenge may prove to be depends perhaps on how far 
ir is taken. Is analytical reason to be rejected as untrust- 
worthy? Or will the effort be not to repudiate realism as 
traditionally understood in the West, but to transform it 
by enlargement? In any event, a need for meaningful 
dialogue on campus on this point is emerging. 

Another source of the growing demand for relevance 
is the widely shared feeling that much academic and 
intellectual activity is divorced from "real" student in- 
terests and concerns. Beginning early in the school life 
is the pressure for academic competence, for grades, for 
some future-oriented goal. Charles Schultz has epitomized 
it most recently in the figure of Charlie Brown's sister 
Sally forlornly wailing, "I'm the only one I know failing 
First Grade Art." The pressure gets worse the further along 
one goes. The pressure is both self-generated and school- 
generated. The growing necessity of graduate school and 
professional training further serves to keep one's feet to 
the fire. In the press for academic competence, increasing 
numbers of students have come to see their academic 

1 



efforts as being largely irrelevant when it comes to 
questions of meaning and significance. As traditional 
religious views and traditional social goals prove less 
satisfactory, the quest for meaning takes on new urgency. 

One result of this concern has been increased demands 
for changes in curriculum. This may take the form of the 
demand for student-tailored programs to suit individual 
conceptions of need. It may be a demand for enlargement 
of curricular offerings to include new subjects considered 
relevant, as demands for seminars on war and peace. There 
may be calls for expansion of a traditionally narrow 
range of offerings, as religion courses on a university 
campus. A recent young graduate, Edward Schwartz, has 
summed up the nature of the demand thus: 

What relevance means more often than not 
is . . . personalization. How does the curriculum 
fit in with my personality development, with my 
ability to solve problems, with the questions 
which I am asking about myself and the world 
around me. Do professors care about these 
things.' 

Where the academic pressures are most intense, where 
no human responses to questions of personhood are forth- 
coming, the tendency has been for students to set out on 
a more private, non-curricular quest for meaning. What 
is emerging, Kenneth Keniston, a Yale psychiatrist, asserts 
is a counter-culture. As Keniston describes it: 

Students have spontaneously created a counter- 
culture which, while not explicitly opposed to 
academic pursuits complements them with a 
focus on the present, on 'existential' values, on 
personal experimentation and on deliberate self- 
transformation as a way of creating meaning. 

This counter-culture then reacts both against the 
academic world's demand for such future-oriented virtues 
as control, planning and waiting, and also against the 
demands of society at large for past-oriented values, such 
as reverence for tradition. Instead, Keniston suggests, the 
counter-culture is present-oriented, and it focuses on such 
values as genuineness, spontaneity, feeling and experi- 
mentation. It brings with it a great tolerance for experi- 



ment and for efforts deliberately to change the self. It 
may express itself as interest in existentialism, in psy- 
chotherapy, in drugs, in sexual experimentation, in travel, 
or in encounter groups. These are at least some of the 
tools utilized in the search for meaning. 

The student demand in terms of personhood, whether 
it leads to demands for curricula changes or results in the 
appearance of a counter-culture, has provoked widely- 
varying reactions. Some critics as John Aldridge dismiss 
the demands for "relevance" in the curriculum as mere 
reflections of "childishness," a continuation of an attitude 
nurtured in childhood of seeing any imposition of law as 
"... a violation of their civil liberties as well as their 
divine rights as members of the new family of adolescence". 
Likewise, Aldridge contends, demands for relevance stem 
from the childish attitude that one should never have to 
do what is boring, monotonous, and difficult, and certainly 
that one should not pursue any subjects the rewards for 
which are long-deferred. 

Other critical observers see in the new counter- 
culture's emphasis on subjectivism, passion, relevance, the 
emergence of a threat to the old academic culture. The 
two, they suggest, cannot long co-exist. Professor Samuel 
Huntingdon has recently described the competition as 
he sees it reflected on the Harvard campus. 

The consensus which did prevail on the purposes 

of the university community is now breaking up. 

It is because students and faculty increasingly 

tend to worship at different altars and to judge 

by different codes. 
It is perhaps not more difficult to teach imder these cir- 
cumstances, Huntingdon contends, but it is less interesting 
for faculty as students are less interested in learning. 

Critics argue that the end result of the new move- 
ment for personhood may well be a decrease in individual- 
ity. In the name of personal identity, proponents of the 
new culture seem to seek to blur or eliminate differences 
of all kinds — whether of race, of sex of personal habits, 
of academic distinctions based on grades or honors. Ironi- 
cally, Professor Huntingdon suggests, the end result of 
the new romantic quest for identity may turn out to be 
the "culture of homogeneity."

"^'^ 



Other critics are concerned about what seems to them 
to be an over-emphasis on social action as a means of 
self-definition. As Aldridge states: 

For them, virtue or freedom or salvation does 
not seem finally to be a personal matter at all. 
It is not to be found in creative fulfillment, in 
aesthetic appreciation, or in the solitary pursuit 
of excellence in any form, but rather in the radi- 
cal revision or overthrow of the existing power 
structures. 
To close off the individual creative endeavor as an avenue 
for personhood is to impoverish, not to enrich. 

Obviously then people do differ about the adequacy 
of the particular paths to personhood being urged on 
campus. However, the student demand for relevance here 
is unlikely to disappear. And if it did, the colleges would 
certainly be in worse trouble than they are now. For 
students are asking to be seen as persons in the process 
of becoming. They ask that the academic life serve not 
just to promote intellectual skills but to promote a sense 
of what it is to be human. And they want the college 
to provide a supportive context for the search for mean- 
ingful existence. To echo Schwartz, "Do professors care 
about these things.'" 

A third source of the demand for relevance is the 
concern that the academic community practice in fact the 
values it affirms in theory. Particularly on the part of 
liberal arts students is this demand acute. In only too 
many instances, the young critics charge, the university is 
already employing its knowledge in the service of in- 
humane values, as in helping develop nerve gas, materials 
for germ warfare and the like. According to the critics, 
at the least the university should withdraw from this kind 
of activity. 

Students call upon the university to affirm its values 
in practice in other ways. The image of Columbia Uni- 
versity as a slum landlord is an unacceptable one to many 
students, not just because of what the slum landlord role 
is, but because of the contradiction between that role and 
the values the university professes. When university ad- 
ministrators reply that a university is not a democracy 
and try to slough off the complaints by saying that how 
the university secures its operating funds is or should be 
of no concern to students, they compound the problem 
and intensify emotions. 

Not only are students asking the college to live up 
to its values, they are asking of American society that it 
do likewise. James Kunen, the Columbia University sopho- 
more who wrote The Strawberry Statement puts it 
poignantly: 

There used to be a dream in America . . . America 
was going to be different . . . free and good. 
Of course we blew it right away . . . But at least 
they clung to the dream. Until now. Now nobody 
hopes for America to be different. I wish people 
would wake up and dream again. 
To be sure, some student radicals have given up on 
America. Others, however, raise the demand to dream 
again and make it real this time. And they are contending 
that if the college is to be true to itself, it must become 
involved. It must pose value questions to society and 
must apply its knowledge to try to solve basic social 
problems. Sometimes the protests are direct, as the Duke 
student protest over wages paid campus service personnel. 
Sometimes the issues which agitate and lead to confronta- 
tions on campus are surrogate issues. Thus the issue of 
ROTC on campus is an issue in itself and also symbolizes 



the broader issue of militarization of our society. In any 
event, the thrust of this discontent is unlikely to decline 
soon. After a two-day campus-wide discussion of national 
and campus issues, President Plimpton of Amherst College 
wrote a letter to President Nixon expressing the dominant 
conclusion of the majority of faculty and students. The 
letter read in part: 

The pervasive and insistent disquiet on many 
campuses throughout the nation indicates that 
the unrest results not from a conspiracy by a few, 
but from a shared sense that the nation has no 
adequate plans for meeting the crises of our so- 
ciety. Until political leadership addresses itself 
to the major problems of our society — the huge 
expenditure of national resources for military 
purposes, the inequities practiced by the present 
draft system, the critical needs of America's 23,- 
000,000 poor, the unequal division in our life on 
racial issues — until this happens, the concern 
and energy of those who know the need for 
change will seek outlets for their frustration. 

In so challenging American political leaders, the young 
protestors are also challenging Americans generally and 
the colleges in particular. 

These then are some of the questions which I, at any 
rate, hear behind the demand for relevance. The way in 
which students today go about posing their questions 
raises another question: what is to be the nature of the 
college itself? A college dehberately juxtaposes two groups 
from different sides of the so-called generation gap, the 
majority, students, and the minority, faculty and adminis- 
tration. The question today is this: is the college to be 
simply and inescapably a battleground, a battleground 
where two camps, forever separated by barriers of age and 
values or lack of them, proceed to wage endless wars, wars 
of liberty vs. authority, individual good vs. bureaucratic 
evil and the like? 

Or is the college to be in fact what by definition 
it is: "a collective body or society of persons engaged in 
common pursuits or having common interests." In short, 
is the college to be a battlefield or a community? 

The answer seems to hinge on whether the questions 
which concern college students today can be asked and 
answers sought in such a way as to preserve or reconstitute 
the college as a community, or whether they may only 
be asked in the atmosphere of conflict and division? 

If the college is to be a community, the indispensable 
ingredient is trust. It is trust in the good faith of the 
various parties and a trust in commitment to certain 
common goals. Further, the college must be open to change 
through reasoned dialogue. To be thus receptive may well 
be to go counter to world trends today. As Arnold Toynbee 
has said of our age: 

There is an absolute stone wall of indifiference 

all over the world. You have to shoot somebody, 

burn yourself alive, do something violent in order 

to get any attention at all, however, good your 

cause or causes . . . 

The college at least professes to believe in listening and 

in dialogue. The questions which are being raised can be 

asked in such a way as to preclude dialogue — or to open 

it up. What we need for community is not emphasis on 

polarization, but the exploration of the whole range of 

possibilities. The potentiality for community is present 

— if there is a will for it.

THE SALEM STUDENT - 1969 



Who Is She? 



By Sandy

Sandy Kelly — Sale-mite Editor 

The Salem student 1969 — who is she? What does 
she do? What concerns her at this moment in her life? 

Salem women are certainly a melange of ideas, opin- 
ions and fashions. The impact of the sixties has shattered 
to a great degree that homegenous Salem "image" of the 
sweet, conservative, Southern girl who comes to college 
for an MRS. as well as a B.A. What one finds instead 
is the Salemite who can't be typed either by her actions 
or her looks. She is, however, still noted (and quite 
rightly so) for her friendliness, her charm, her courteous 
manner, and her concern for others — an image which 
will probably always remain a part of the Salem scene. 

From the classroom to peace rallies in the Square to 
debutant parties to teaching underprivileged children in 
Winston-Salem, the Salem girls carry an individualism 
characteristic of their era. Many of them focus their at- 
tentions beyond the Square and away from schoolwork and 
men to realize and aid in the aleviation of social ills and 
problems. Recognizing their own good fortune, many feel 
an obligation to improve the lot of their fellow men 
finding both campus and city-wide organizations to pro- 
vide the opportunity to do this. 

There is notable concern about national and inter- 
national affairs on campus, and the opinions on these issues 
range the spectrum from right to left. Students not only 
look beyond the Square to view the world, but seem to 
try to bring the world into the life around the Square, 
thus bringing reality closer to "home". This was evidenced 
by the recent community-wide peace rally in the Square 
during the Vietnam Moratorium on October 15 in which 
approximately half the students participated. Those who 
participated did so with a reasoned, healthy dissent, and 
for the entire campus it was an informative, constructive, 
educational experience.

Kelly, 70 

Relevance in education is another cry of the Salemite, 
particularly within the past two years. She is no longer 
willing to accept the traditional lecture-feedback method 
of teaching. She is beginning to demand a challenge in 
her educational field and she requests to be able to 
challenge herself through increased independent study. 
Curriculum changes are on the horizon which should 
bolster and augment the liberal arts tradition and bring 
the twentieth century into the classroom. One such change 
being considered is the 4-1-4 plan which provides for 
two four-month semesters from September to December 
and February to May. This leaves the one month of 
January open for independent study or concentrated course 
work in a narrow field. This could certainly do away with 
that terrible problem of January under the present system, 
and it would provide the student a chance to do indepen- 
dent study, to pursue some relevant topic and to work in 
the twentieth century if she so wished. 

Social concerns of the Salem student reflect her in- 
creased individualism also. No longer can she be spotted 
because of her conforming fashion tastes. Perhaps it is in 
fashion that she is most contemporary, as her tastes reflect 
1969 not only in hemlines but also in styles. Her dating 
life is still that of Jubilee weekends and fraternity parties; 
lavaliers, pins, and diamonds, but transportation has made 
her able to expand her geographic dating area to such 
places as Miami, Boston, New Orleans, Denver, Chicago 
and even Europe for the weekend. 

In all of these areas in which Salem students are 
concerned, there is a growing emphasis to be satisfied with 
oneself and one's own life. The culmination of the in- 
dividualistic movement on campus is this, coupled with 
the motivation to change that which makes one unsatisfied 
with one's life or with society. Consequently, they express 
their concerns more openly; they are more active. 

The Salem student 1969 represents both the genera- 
tion of her parents and the youth of today. Her outlook 
on life ranges within the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. 
She is complex, even enigmatic, but above all (and cer- 
tainly more than I have seen in my four years at Salem), 
she is an individual.

Notice of this convocation — at this hour on this 
day — was first printed in the College catalogue last 
Spring and thus has been known to most of you since 
that time. I assume, therefore, that the students are on 
hand voluntarily for school's opening and that my col- 
leagues on the faculty and staff are here by choice as well. 

All of us, in our respective ways, have had an option 
in the matter. It is my sincere wish that we may prove 
to ourselves and to each other that we have chosen wisely 
. . . We have the opportunity and the potentiality to make 
this a lastingly meaningful year. 

In the prospect that this will be so, I welcome each 
of you and at the same time challenge you. 

When I welcome you — students, faculty and staff 
alike, including the largest student body of modern times 
at Salem Academy (seated in the rear of the auditorium) 
— I welcome you: 

To a campus that is not without charm. 

To a way of life that is appropriate to you at your age, 
sometimes restrictive you think, yet nevertheless 
liberating. 

To a Winston-Salem community that is busy and 
interesting and alive. 
I welcome you 

To hard and demanding work. 

To relaxed and enjoyable play. 

To warm dry days and to cool wet ones. 

To high moments and low. 
And I welcome students, in particular: 

To growth in the art and habit of self-discipline. 

To development in awareness of and respect for each 
other. 

To acceptance of personal responsibility under an 
Honor Tradition that depends upon just that.

As has been the case in the past at Salem and else- 
where, you will be listening to many voices this year. 
Some will speak with selfish purpose, some with petulant 
impatience, some with daring invitation, and some with 
obvious authority. 

And I naturally wonder: To whom will you really 

be listening? 

* * * 

I assume it is safe to say that never before in the 
history of man have so many voices been heard in our land. 

The ultimate, to date, in my opinion, was the voice 
and picture transmission this summer from Armstrong and 
Aldrin on the moon. I am sure you saw and heard events 
leading up to and following that miracle of science and 
technology. I, for one, will never forget it. As a non- 
scientist, I am truly impressed. I can accept and in a way 
comprehend the blast-off, the ride through space, the 
landing, the subsequent rendezvous with Cooper, the re- 
turn voyage and the splash-down in the Pacific. 

But having seen the tons of equipment and the 666- 
foot tower of our local TV station on Sauratown Moun- 
tain, I marvel still more that a 71/2 lb. camera and a small 
radio transmitter could send picture and voice into my 
living room from 248,000 miles away. 

Other less dramatic but more insistent voices bom- 
bard us daily: 



"If you want to become a beauty queen, use this eye- 
shade" . . . "If your romance is to succeed, use this 24-hour 
deodorant" . . . "If you want clean clothes, use this 
detergent." 

And so it goes, on and on: millions of dollars spent 
to extol the supremacy of tires, coffee, shaving cream, 
cigarettes, automobiles, toothpaste, bras, girdles, hair spray, 
peanut butter, electrical appliances, credit cards, building 
materials, insurance, gasoline, chewing gum, soft drinks, 
beer, soup, soap, and all the rest. 

These voices, presumably psychologically persuasive, 
are profit motivated and, in a sense therefore, selfish. 
« # * 

Then there are the voices of the politicians, the office- 
holders, the columnists, the editorial writers, the writers 
of letters-to-the-editor. These are voices that try to persuade 
you to a particular viewpoint, explain a course of action, 
or correct a wrong impression. As a citizen, you will need 
to listen and weigh one against the other. 

There are the voices also of your parents, of your 
roommates, your boy friends, your student leaders, your 
alarm clocks, the class bell, the telephone, your Honor 
Tradition, your conscience. These have bearing rather 
intimately on life as you will be living it here this year. 

There are other voices, of course: the voices of song, 
often in loud and slurred unintelligibility; the voices of 
sliding trombones, of wailing oboes, of blaring trumpets, 
of tinkling guitars . . . And the voices of art, of the art 
which soothes, the art which confuses, and the art which 
startles. 

Also, the voices of movies for adults only, movies for 
children only, and movies occasionally for the whole 
family . . . There are sexy and other paperback voices, 
too, and the voice of Peanuts, of course. 

I have not exhausted identification of all the voices 
that are abroad in this land. You may compile your own 
additional list. Some of the sounds you can shut out, some 
will force themselves upon you, some will tempt you be- 
yond resistance. 

* * * 

Which ones will you tune in? Which ones will you 
believe? Will your choices change any during the course 
of the year? 

Whatever your present attitudes and viewpoints may 
be, they are the result of your exposure ro certain voices, 
to certain bits of knowledge, to the opinions and prejudices 
expressed and the example set by others, particularly by 
parents, friends and teachers. 

Sometimes — too often, I think — one's attention is 
caught and held largely by those facts and opinions which 
support viewpoints already held. Everyone likes to hear 
or see statements which support his judgments. This is- 
flattering. The danger lies in one's unwillingness thereafter 
to consider seriously a differing or opposing view on the 
same matter. 

Herein lies a risk of making no progress at all. Sub- 
consciously, perhaps, one evidences his refusal to listen. 

The college experience and exposure, if you give 
yourself to it on even a 371^-hour work-week basis — 
and it usually deserves more time — should provide one's 

5 



Mil 



mind with new facts and then provoke new ideas, new 
judgments, new vistas. 

This can be disturbing, of course. No longer can you 
assume that life and the world revolves about you as an 
individual and center largely in the satisfaction of your 
appetites, desires and pleasures. 

For there is trouble in life, danger in society, prob- 
lems to solve. 

The more you listen to voices which attempt to 
explain the national and world economy, the problems 
involved in population growth, in politics, in racial rela- 
tions, in international affairs, in urban blight, in housing, 
in poverty, in inflation, in war, and a host of other com- 
plexities, the less likely you will be to fashion quick and 
easy answers. Yet as a citizen, favored by the opportunity 
of an education, you will have to help find some answers 
in the days of your life. 

This means that you will have to listen to some voices 
that you are unaccustomed to hear or that you have refused 
thus far to credit with having anything to say. But the 
opening of your mind to these can be a liberating ex- 
perience and can result in ethical and moral as well as 
intellectual growth, plus an increasing sense of responsi- 
bility for the welfare of your fellowman. 

The way situations have been developing in this 
country in recent years it is becoming increasingly apparent 
that one's own seeming security and welfare may depend 
much on the welfare of one's fellowman. 
* * * 

Since your parents are investing considerable money 
and you are investing your time at Salem this year, it is 
safe to assume you will give particular heed to the voices 
that sound on this campus. These are many: the voices 
of faculty principally, of course, in classroom, laboratory, 
conference and casual conversation . . . the voices of the 
authors of more than 75,000 volumes in the library . . . 
the voices in assembly programs . . . the voices in a variety 
of extra-curricular activities ... the voices of each of you 
to each other . . . 

How intently you listen will be your decision. To 
what extent you consider the voices authorative remains to 
be revealed. 

In this connection, may I report that I sat in on an 
interesting conversation this summer between a young 
man and his grandfather. From all that was said — and I 
admire the boy for his complete frankness — the disquiet- 
ing impression continues to haunt me that this young 
man seems to reject any authority except his own. 

He did admit that Armstrong and Aldrin apparently 
had landed on the moon, but he is reluctant to accept it 
fully until he gets there himself. 

He has heard there is a cosmos, but he will withhold 
verification of this until he somehow can prove it per- 
sonally some day. 

He resents prescribed courses in school, especially 
the necessity of taking any math or science, and thinks 
he knows how the whole curriculum should be restructured. 

He is repelled by our materialistic society, even to 
the extent, I noticed, of not wearing shoes. 

He has tried pot twice, he said, but is finished with 
that; it did him no good whatever. 

He is through with barbers because a haircut costs 
$2.25. 

His father is too easy, too kind and too permissive, 
he says, but his mother is satisfactory at the moment al- 
though she wasn't quite "with it" when he and his brothers 
and sisters were younger. 
6 



This young man had strong and positive opinions 
on everything. He disagreed with his grandfather on every 
subject mentioned except one. This was that the steak 
Grandpa made a special trip to get for him was really 
a good steak . . . This was because he experienced it per- 
sonally, I suppose. 

The young man, I am afraid, heard nothing his wise 
and experienced grandfather said. He tuned out Grandpa's 
well-experienced viewpoints and listened only to his own 
. . . Perhaps this is because grandfathers (and grand- 
mothers, too) are out-of-date for some young people and 
will continue so, I am inclined to believe, until some young 
people become grandfathers and grandmothers themselves 
some day. 

But all this is digression, in a sense, although you 
are free to read into it anything that seems appropriate to 
your situation. 

* * # 

What I started to say is that there are authoritative 
voices on this campus whose business and concern is to 
help you acquire and sharpen some of the tools necessary 
for further understanding. I include in this category the 
tools involved in required basic courses of the Freshman 
and Sophomore years. 

These faculty voices are devoted to helping you ex- 
plore matters that should enrich your awareness, help 
establish certain values, train and test your ability to think, 
and stir a desire in you for study and learning for the 
rest of your lives. 

# * * 

What makes a novel great or a poem meaningful or 
just plain beautiful and somehow satisfying? 

What are sound standards for judging and appre- 
ciating a work of art? 

What about music? Is the disc jockey and his assort- 
ment of wares the ultimate in musical sound or might 
there be some unexplored pleasure available when guest 
artists and students and faculty of the School of Music 
perform? 

Are there wonders in nature that, revealed, might 
stimulate your mind and imagination? 

Does history repeat itself? Is there any similarity be- 
tween present trends and conditions in America and the 
decline and fall of the Roman Empire? 

Is the Electoral College outdated? Can a third party 
succeed in this country? 

Should government assume full responsibility for 
health, welfare, recreational and educational services, or is 
there a continuing need for volunteer social agencies? 

How and why did the French, Spanish, German and 
Italian languages develop as they did? And why is the 
English language so difficult? 

Can chemistry possibly be relevant to urban ills, in- 
cluding, of course, air and water pollution? 

Is mathematics a science or an exercise in logic? 

Do the philosophers of the ages have anything to say 
to us today? 

Is God dead? Is the Church meeting our needs in 
these times? Is a literal interpretation of the Bible essen- 
tial to one's faith? 

Does psychology help one to understand and accept 
himself and understand and accept other people as well? 

And, finally, is this brief catalogue of possible ques- 
tions to which faculty voices and textbook voices may 
help provide some answers: 

Are there concepts, ideas and principles that cross-

Frances Bailey --Budding Young Actress 



By Landis Miller Neal, '64 



Pert, auburn-haired Frances Bailey, '64, of Midlothian, 
Virginia, and now of New York City is on the road to 
success in the Theatrical World. Her acting debut was 
made as an elf in A Midsummer Night's Dream, when she 
was a fourth-grader at St. Catherine's in Richmond. 

While at Salem, Frances was president of the Pierrette 
Players her senior year. She was elected to Who's Who in 
American Colleges and Universities and was a member of 
the Order of the Scorpion and Phi Alpha Theta, honorary 
history society. 

After graduation in 1964, she set out for New York City 
and Columbia University's work-study program. There she 
received her master's degree in theater arts in 1966. 

For two summers Frances was associated with the 
Barnard-Columbia Summer Theatre, including experience 
as Technical Director. At one time she was also stage 
manager for the "Dance Uptown" group of young pro- 
fessionals in New York. 

Frances left New York in 1968 and joined the resi- 
dent company of the Wedgewood Dinner Theatre in Vir- 
ginia. She was with the company for over a year and 
enjoyed the roles of: Emma in Fa-pa Is All; Emily Kim- 
brough in Our Hearts Were Young And Gay; Beryl in 
Everything in the Garden; Shirley in ]enny Kissed Me; 
and Julia in Claudia. 

"Mostly I've played ingenues," Frances states, "and I'm 
satisfied with that for a while." About Wedgewood she 
says, "I loved it. I really did. There's a very high caliber 
of professionalism there." 

On the human interest side of her Wedgewood ex- 
perience Frances reports that she "tore all ligaments in [my] 
right arm getting thrown under the quilting table every 
night by mean Papa in Papa Is All." In ]enny she had to 
wear twelve pairs of socks, stockings, and pad her cheeks 



to be fat in Act I . . . then had to lose 17 pounds 13 
ounces by Act III. "I was changing costume more than I 
was on stage!" she remembers. 

In a newspaper feature on Frances while at Wedge- 
wood, columnist Gloria Galloway made the following re- 
marks. "Frances Bailey has a play of her own to her credit 
with a unique distinction. It was written in a drawer!" 
Frances quipped that she "was working in a book store in 
New York City during the day and going to graduate 
school at night. I typed the play between customers!" 

Her play entitled The Fear-Shaped Bed was written 
for children and features a witch as the main character. 
It has already been performed in several New York schools. 
"One of Frances' ambitions," the newspaper article states, 
"is to have a play published 'someday'." 

In the meantime it seems that acting is Frances' 
love. Her acting experience includes roles in: St. Joan, 
Under Milkwood, For Heaven's Sake!, Age of Opulence, 
Light in August, This Property is Condemned, Mrs. Mc- 
Thing, and Princess Ida. 

Frances left Wedgewood last spring and went to 
Camp Waziyatah in Morrison, Maine, for the summer. 
There she worked with children in creative dramatics and 
wrote and directed several playlets. 

"And now," says Frances, "it's back to New York 
City for studying acting in greater depth after a year's 
experience in a regional, non-equity theatre, and for more 
auditions, and possibly an equity card. It's an unstable 
business in every way, but I'm hooked. You forget the 
auditions and pavements when you land a part. Once I'm 
on stage I know I'll never be happy doing anything else!" 

To Frances Bailey the Salem Alumnae give their 
proud support and wish all the luck and good fortune 
possible. 



"It's an unstable business in every way — but I'm hooked."

The Excitement of Learning 

Presented as part of Vreshman orientation 



RICHARD D. KRUSE 

Instructor in 
Mathematics 



JOAN JACOBOWSKY 

Associate Professor 
of Voice 




The question I am asking and trying to answer is, why 
have so many people in the past and present worked so 
hard and sometimes even dedicated their lives to the 
quest for new knowledge? Something had to motivate 
them. 

Let us hypothesize several answers and examine them. 
Were these people motivated by humanitarian reasons? 
This may be a partial answer for fields such as medicine, 
however, many fields are not directly related to helping 
people. Was fame the motivational factor? I don't believe 
so since many significant contributors to their fields have 
remained unknown to the general public or were not 
recognized widely until after their death. 

What about money? Money motivates many people. 
Speaking of something with which I am familiar, many of 
the great mathematicians were university professors and 
we all know how well teachers are paid. Also, how much 
was Newton paid for his discovery of calculus or how 
much was Einstein paid for his relativity theory? Not 
much I'm afraid. No, I don't think it was money. 

Do people have a natural instinct to learn something 
new every day? I don't believe this is the whole answer 
either, because I have seen too many people who did not 
have this instinct. 

Therefore, if these people were not entirely moti- 
vated by humanitarian reasons, fame, money, or instinct, 
what was the underlying motivational factor? 

Let me illustrate my answer with a famous story. 
Archimedes, who lived about 300 B.C., solved the prob- 
lem of the king's crown when he sat in a filled bath tub 
and it spilled over the sides. The solution to the problem 
is not important here, but his reaction to his discovery is. 

He ran through the streets partially clad shouting 
"Eureka, Eureka!" meaning, "I have found it." Does that 
sound as if he were looking for fame or money? Hardly. 
It appears to me, he was intensely excited about his dis- 
covery. 

Here, I think, hes the key to the whole question. To 
discover something new or to master a new concept is 
exciting and very personally satisfying, enough so to spur 
one on to more work. And this, I believe, was and still is 
the most important factor motivating men in their quest 
for new knowledge. 

I hope you find some of this excitement at Salem. 



Like so many members of the older generation, I feel 
efninently qualified to advise, sympathize or remonstrate 
with any member of the younger generation who through 
some misfortune or other is forced to listen to my "pearls 
of acquired wisdom." My sarcasm is not aimed at our topic 
which seems to be a timely one, but at my presumption in 
giving a speech about it. The reason for my "new-born" 
humility in this respect is very simple. I spent a very in- 
tensive six weeks this summer as a student and incidentally, 
intensive is a polite understatement. Not that teachers 
aren't studying and learning all the time (that's one of 
the primary fringe benefits of the job.), but we do it in 
our own way and largely in our own time. (There's no 
professor standing there waiting to collect the papers! ) 
Both the formal and "do it yourself" variety of learning 
have their merit, but of one thing I'm sure, my attitude 
towards the student's position has changed considerably 
since last June. Permit me then to generalize, admitting 
right now that generalizations of this kind range in truth 
from plain "hot air" to an occasional, fleeting moment of 
truth. 

First, I'd like to say that your generation needs a 
"pep talk" on the excitement of learning about as much 
as / need one on the importance of teachers on the college 
campus. You're passionately concerned with people and 
the world, and you're willing to put up with a lot of 
"mumbo- jumbo" if there's a chance you might learn some- 
thing. You're not afraid of feelings — thinking them an 
adjunct to the intellect rather than a threat to it. All this 
I find exciting and I'ery re-assuring. 

There are two things I do want to say about learning 
which come from my own rather peculiar if not unique 
experience. They're offered hoping you'll find them in- 
teresting and perhaps helpful. 

Music is my special field and within that — more es- 
pecially — singing. Talent undoubtedly plays a large part 
in one's musical achievement, but there is as much "hocus- 
pocus" abroad concerning it as there seems to be about 
intellectual aptitude. Musical performers innocently con- 
tribute to this magical impression since they work most 
of their lives trying to make music appear spontaneous 
and effortless to the listener. The excitement of the end 
result is there. It's real, both to the performer and the 
audience, but the gruelling, frustrating, endless hours of 
hard work are also there. For a few glorious moments of 
inspiration and excitement there is a constant price to be 
paid. Fortunately, human beings forget unpleasantness and 
drudgery and remember only the pleasure. We remember 
the babies' first delightful attempts at speech and not the 



t'lm-i 



dirty diapers — the sun at the beach and tiot the sand in 
the bed. What I'm really saying is that you have a mar- 
velous opportunity to experience deeply satisfying mo- 
ments at the price of a lot of hard work which will soon 
be forgotten. With each new experience you become more 
conditioned to the reward and less to the price exacted. 

To turn to a more practical side of the situation — 
you'll never again be more free to pursue learning than 
you are now — • especially since you happen to be a 
woman. We hope that this encounter with formal educa- 
tion will whet your appetite for a life time of study, but 
the fact is — • after your formal education is over — study- 
ing — no matter how worth while, becomes a luxury. 
Your choices now are more like — should I stay on cam- 
pus this weekend and study or go to Davidson and pursue 
a different kind of education? Should I elect a course with 
that inspiring teacher Prof. Workhard and be lucky to 
pull a "C" or take that elective in summer school with 
gorgeous Prof. What's Name who gives so many "A's"? 
Later on — • you're likely to be wife, mother, and possibly 
career woman all rolled into one hectic little bundle. Then 
the choices become more exasperating if not harder. Should 
I catch up on my favorite contemporary poet or work on 
the committee struggling to cope with ever intensifying 
urban problems.' Are son John's music lessons so important 
( he doesn't practice anyway unless I stand over him ) , 
or should I spend chauffering time and money taking 
"dear old Mom" out to the Univ. for that course she's 
been dying to have? What I'm trying to say is that as a 
college graduate dedicated to the value of education as 
a continuing process, you're likely to be "bugged" by a 
conflict of priorities. No one's going to debate the absence 
of a value relationship between clean clothes and the 
latest book on foreign policy, but the fact remains — that 
daughter Susie can't hit school on Monday wearing foreign 
policy. Consequently, it seems only practical to take full 
advantage of your formal education while your role is 
primarily that of a student. 

Have fun! Being a college student is the greatest! 
Being a perpetual student is just a little harder!! 




JAMES L BRAY 

Associate Professor 
of Education 



Madame Chairman, Class of '73, fellow faculty mem- 
bers, please let me extend my gratitude for the opportunity 
of participating in this my fourth Excitement of Learning 
Program. My first and second presentations dealt with the 
education of women, and my third on the educational 
changes as I anticipated them for the next two decades. 
Tonight, please allow me a few brief minutes to develop 
a letter to the daughter I never had. As upperclassmen 
will tell you, I am the father of two fine sons. I do, how- 
ever, realize that any member of this class — in years as 
well as in imagination — could have been my daughter. 
And since you have been here a mite over twenty-four 
hours, it would be most plausible for the letter to be 



written tonight to a young woman not unlike any one 
of you. My letter would go something like this: 
My dear daughter. 

Today you spend your first full day at college. Much 
to your delight and my fright you are officially a member 
of the "now-generation." I suppose I associate the mem- 
bership with long hair, pot, dropouts, and much too loud 
music. Being over forty (and whether I like it or not), I 
am forced into the camp of the squares. Incidentally, it 
was my generation who coined that term. At any rate, I 
wanted to write you tonight and for maybe a first time 
. . . introduce you to the me that is slightly more than 
the driver to dance lessons, griper of overspending, a 
has-been Santa Claus, or the faceless creature behind the 
newspaper. Tonight I would hope this written communi- 
cation would introduce one thinking individual to another. 

Today you have begun your work in an institution 
which hopefully will deal in ideas. You will tell your 
professors in due time that you want your education to be 
relevant, and I would most certainly defend your right 
to make the demand. I do, that is, if you are willing to 
assume the responsibilities that accompany the dictum. It 
will be the responsibility of the professors to present you 
with the ideas of both past and present. It will be your 
responsibility to see the relationships and to make those 
ideas relevant to an ever changing society. Your education 
should be exciting but it will be a different excitement 
than you associate with sensory pleasures. I suppose it is 
in opening your mind to the endless possibilities, and of 
using present knowledge to unfold new knowledge. There 
is untold excitement when the unknown is made known. 

I have thought often since your departure of my own 
entrance to college. I was convinced my own generation 
would take the world by the tail and solve every problem 
we tackled. What happened? In a decade or two you may 
well ask that same question of your own generation. 

You will be very busy these next years telling me 
what I told my father; namely, how to swing with the 
times. And if you are not careful, you will make the same 
mistake that I made. You will give the answers before 
you learn the questions. I might well make the same mis- 
take my father made. That is, even knowing the questions, 
I will look to yesterday for the answers. Neither of us 
should repeat mistakes. 

I wonder what would happen if we joined forces . . . 
your generation and mine. I can offer only experience; 
you can offer the freshness of youthful thinking. Perhaps 
if we joined hands, we could accomplish what my folks 
missed and what your generation is likely to leave for your 
children. I am not too old for battle nor you too young. 
So let us prepare for the battle against wars, disease, 
poverty and prejudice. Let us seek values from our learn- 
ing to know the difference between the important and the 
unimportant. Let neither of us be too quick to condemn 
the other or that which we know as the generation gap 
will become the generation canyon. We need each other 
far too much to disagree simply for the sake of disagree- 
ment. 

I trust that these next few years in college you will 
find some answers to some questions. College is at best a 
beginning. If you learn that a new idea is of far more 
value than a new thing, you will be a wise woman. And it 
is not enough that you know what you are against. You must 
also know what you embrace. It is also my wish that you 
develop your own ideas and become at least a partial in- 
dependent being to yourself. Learn patience and discipline. 

9 



Learn to find a wrong repugnant and a right worthy of 
your thoughts. But know the difference. 

As I re-read this letter I sense that my daughter and 
her father have a real basis for knowing each other. I 
know now that the years that separate us will not and 
cannot keep us from our battle to make this a better 
world. And I know even more, I know that I can share 
for this night the hope that both of us will succeed. 

In closing, my dear daughter, I write the words of 
Leo Tolstoy from his short but beautiful story What 
Men Live By. In a sense it sums up what both of us 
have tried to state. 

"I knew before that God gives life to men, and 
desires them to live; but now I know far more. I know 
that God does not desire men to live apart from each 
other, and therefore has not revealed to them what is need- 
ful for each of them to live by himself. He wishes them 
to live together united, and therefore has revealed to them 
that they are needful to each other's happiness. I know 
now that people only seem to live when they care only for 
themselves, and that it is by love for others that they 
really live. He who has Love has God in him, and is in 
God . . . because God is Love." 

Goodnight, my dear daughter and I send you all 
my love . . . 

Your Square Father 




STEPHEN R. NOHLGREN 

Instructor in Biology 



May I extend to you a welcome to Salem College on 
behalf of the Sciences — physics, chemistry and biology. 
Collectively the sciences are an exciting field, both from 
the standpoint of the products of science — the Epic 
Journey of Apollo 11, for instance — and also from the 
learning experiences in the study of science. There is an 
excitement of learning in science. This is characterized by 
the feeling of excitement about his work held by each 
scientist, whether he be a laboratory worker, a theorist, 
or a field investigator. In my sneak preview tonight, let me 
introduce you to the people of our department and some 
of the things we're doing in biology. 

On leave of absence this year is Donald McLeod, our 
resident mountain man! Mr. McLeod is an avid field 
botanist and ecologist. Talk about getting excited about 
his work — the enthusiasm literally rubs off if you spend 
any time at all with this man in his environment — the 
Smoky Mountains. 

The sophisticated and reserved chairman of the 
Biology Department is Dr. James Edwards, a geneticist 
first class. All of you taking biology this year will meet 
him when he discusses DNA and the meaning of science 
with you the first two weeks of class. His interests are 
fruit flies and motorcycles, and those of you interested will 
find out much about genetics and evolution.

Frank Willingham comes to us from Florida this 
year — he also is interested in plants as a graduate botan- 
ist. He'll be firing up some of our new equipment this year 
so that the general course will have quite a bit of ex- 
perimental "goings on." He is also the tour guide for the 
exciting field trips planned for this spring. 

I'm a microbiologist and immunologist and, while 
bacteria and antibodies don't sound too exciting, I'm sure 
you've all been made aware of some of the breakthroughs 
in this field — heart and other organ transplants in par- 
ticular. 

Joyce Richter, a charming young lady, heads up our 
laboratory programs. I'm sure you'll all get to know her 
soon. 

One final name comes to mind — and although he's 
not a member of the department or even living — you'll 
hear the name Charles Darwin often enough to think he 
is both! 

What then do we do? Many and varied things. Some 
time is spent in the field, as we always find time to study 
North Carolina ecology. 

In the lab we may look at things reptilial ... or at 
the female biology student's favorite animals — the worms 
. . . and study regeneration. 

Or we may scrutinize the fishes — an exciting display 
of variety and specialization ... or probe the history of 
us all by making note of the living fossil Latimeria, well 
known from fossil records but believed to be extinct until 
1938 when a native fisherman pulled one into his boat 
in the Indian Ocean. 

How about things that crawl? What's man's most 
deadly enemy — other than himself? The scorpion — no 
— nor the tarantula or the black widow. She is the female 
Anopheles mosquito . . . vector of malaria, elephantiasis, 
encephalitis, yellow fever, and many other dread diseases. 

Do all starfish have five arms? Are there any pretty 
slugs? Students spend much time in the laboratory using 
this and that piece of equipment searching for that elusive 
answer . . . learning. 

In the final analysis, excitement is where you find it. 
Many of us have found excitement in the learning of 
science. I cordially invite you to join us in our learning 
process, or at least appreciate our enthusiasm. 



TO WHOM SHALL WE LISTEN . . . 

(Continued from Page 6) 
cut all fields of knowledge and relate literature and art 
and music and physics, even, to each other? 

As I suggested earlier, you will be listening to many 
voices this year. Some will speak with petulant impatience, 
some with selfish purpose, some with daring invitation, 
some with obvious authority. 

You have repeated options. Only you can decide 
which voices will come through. My sincere wish is that 
you make good and wise choices.

Several years ago the Seniors of that year, I think it 
was, introduced either at their own Follies program or 
on FITS Stunt Night a song that somehow sounds fre- 
quently and hauntingly in the untutored musical com- 
partment of my mind. We will hopefully hear it sung by 
one or more of the classes ( or by all of you ) again this 
year. It is sentimental in meaning and purpose. But part 
of one line, a sort of refrain in the song, hints at what 
I have been trying to suggest. It is merely this: "Are you 
listening?"

SALEM'S FIRST SUMMER ABROAD 



BY SUSAN LEAKE, '69 



What was Salem's first summer abroad program in 
Italy like? All of us on the trip agreed that our experiences 
could only be recorded, not re-created. Immediately upon 
our arrival, we realized that, although we were "Salem 
in Italy" students, "our" little village of Asolo (situated 
forty-two miles northwest of Venice and at the base of 
the Dolomite Mountains) held little resemblance to that 
Salem Square campus. We knew, too, that despite the 
fact we would leave six weeks later, we could never forget 
the invaluable knowledge gained there through art classes, 
excursions, language, and a close contact with our pro- 
fessors as well as the Italians. 

After meeting at Kennedy Airport in New York, 
we boarded a BO AC jet June 16 for London. I'm sure 
that the British stewardesses are accustomed to all varieties 
of "carry-on baggage", but nineteen eager, excited art 
students wielding nineteen collapsible aluminum easels 
did supply them with galley gossip for the next five 
hours. Although somewhat travel weary after our flight, 
we managed to take every advantage of London that night 
and for the next two successive days. Discussions ranging 
from Westminster Abbey and the National Gallery to 
Soho and the English version of the play "Hair" filled 
late-night hours after full-days' touring, sight-seeing, and 
shopping. 

A flight delay from London to Venice made our ar- 
rival in Asolo quite late at night. This proved, however, 
to be a memotable introduction. After winding and climb- 
ing the road to Asolo, we unloaded the bus and took a 
walking tour of the village. In the quiet of the night, 
we were delighted by the fast-asleep old buildings and 
narrow streets with a panoramic backdrop lightly illumi- 
nated by the moon. Happily we found this first impression 
still held our aesthetic attention in the next morning's 
light. 



The next two days were spent acclimating ourselves 
to a different language and living quarters. Our home- 
away-from-home, Casa Freia Stark (loaned to the college 
for the summer by the people of Asolo ) , not only came 
equipped with marble bathrooms, but also with an un- 
believable garden which one student described as "Words- 
worthian": well-kept but not manicured. It was in this 
almost two acre garden of roses, orchids, grape arbors, 
fig and plum trees that the class schedule was set up and 
our first lesson of "survival Italian" was given. Quite a 
change from the usual Main Hall orientations! We soon 
were able to recognize familiar landmarks such as the pre- 
Roman fortress; La Rocca, commanding the highest hill 
in Asolo and reminding us how embryonic our surround- 
ings were in comparison; the large villa that Robert 
Browning had built for his ill wife, Elizabeth Barrett; 
San Luigi, a now-empty convent that was to become our 
classroom; the Cafe Centrale and fountain where towns- 
people and Americans met to converse over cups of 
capuchino; and Asolo's answer to Salem's refectory: the 
Due Mori. 

Although no single day of class could be classified as 
"typical", we did follow somewhat the same schedule in 
the course of earning our six credits. Italian classes were 
given at 7:00 a.m. during our continental breakfast. As 
we picked up more vocabulary, we found that buying art 
supplies or stamps did not have to be an hour ordeal 
resulting in hyperextended arm muscles from gesturing 
when we could not make ourselves understood. We even 
bought several of the popular Italian records to play dur- 
ing class to expand our familiarity with the language. 
Sculpture class in San Luigi convent began at 9:00 a.m. 
Setting ourselves up around the inside courtyard of the 
convent, we began our summer of pounding, kneading, 
and pleading with the clay to come out in the forms our 



"At the start we had only been a group of boys and girls from different schools and backgrounds ,

minds had invisioned. We also made sketches, drawings, 
and side-trips to see other sculptures (Marini, Canova) 
to explore the possibilities of the medium. 

After sculpture class, we adjourned for the three 
hour festival that Italians call their noon meal and siesta. 
Lunch consisted of Pasta, charcoaled meat, salad, and fruit. 
Siesta consisted of whatever one wanted it to: sleep, 
sunbathing, painting, sculpture, letter-writing, or decorating 
your room with the week's laundry. At 3:00 we gathered 
easels and masonite panels and once again returned to 
San Luigi for painting class in our individual rooms. If 
class were to be sketching around Asolo, an Italian dic- 
tionary was a necessary article to converse with the 
numerous inquisitive townspeople who kept an avid in- 
terest in our work and who would compliment all draw- 
ings, good or bad, with a hearty "bello! bello!" Long 
hikes for sketches demanded sturdy shoes and an ample 
supply of insect repellant. Once, expecting another five- 
mile "jaunt", we pleasantly found ourselves visiting the 
Tyrolean house of the gracious widow who operated a 
boutique across the street from Casa Freia. We did paint- 
ings of her rose and hydrangea festooned home while 
avidly receiving glasses of Coca Cola . . . with ice! 

Although we did, indeed, work for our credits, the 
schedule was broken for several trips. A day "excursion" 
and a weekend trip were made to Venice, and five days 
were devoted to our trip to Florence via Pomposa, Ravenna, 
Arezzo, Padua and one night in Sienna. Even the students 
who were not art majors found it exciting to talk about 
a work of art. Instead of turning the pages of an art book 
to see it, we could simply walk up to the Michelangelo, 
Giotto, or Titian painting or sculpture and discuss it 
face-to-face. And where else but in Italy can Verdi's 
Aida be performed in the typical Italian grandiose 
manner? Verona may have been the stage for Romeo and 
Juliet, but what we saw that evening in the old amphi- 
theater was far removed from Shakespeare! 

As our stay in Asolo drew to an end, we began pre- 
paring for our art show. We gave a party for the people 
of the town, the proceeds of which, amounting to $200, 
were donated to the Asolo town library. Dancing, talking, 
and laughing with the Italians cuhninated our belief that, 
yes, we might return to Europe as tourists, but as far as 
Asolo was concerned, we were simply "visiting friends". 
Rising at 6:30 the next morning to hang our art show, we 
were given "sidewalk supervision" even at that early hour 
as the Asoloni came out from early mass at the near-by 
church. But it was not until later that same afternoon, 
when we were assembled at the city hall and each per- 
sonally presented with an etching of Asolo complete 
with the date and town seal, that we fully realized our 
experiences and education in Italy far extended the 
artistic realm. 

The next ten days were spent in independent travel. 
Some rented a car and drove through Northern Italy, 
Switzerland, and Germany. Others went to Scandinavia, 
Berlin, and Greece. But we all managed to meet in Paris 
to relate excitedly our recent travels and prepare for the 
flight back to the States. Over the confusion of trying to 
put sixty pounds into a suitcase and still have it weigh 
under the forty-four pound limit and devising ways of 
making a new suede coat instantly look old so that it 
would not have to be declared for customs, we all looked 
back six short weeks. At the start, we had been only a 
group of boys and girls from different schools and back- 
12 



grounds with only the excitement of going to Europe to 
band us together. We were now among a small, select 
group who knew what it was like to wotk hard and then 
play, to live a language and a culture, to be mistaken as a 
European, to have a shopowner exchange a pair of shoes 
from his store for your first painting, or, in other words, 
to live life as none of us had ever before done. Record, 
yes; re-create, no. As one student phrased it, "You can't 
believe it until you live it." I agree. 

Editor's Note: Susan Leake is now hack in Asolo con- 
tinuing her studies and living with an 
Italian family. 



IS SALEM RELEVANT.' 

(Continued from. Page 3) 
In the final analysis, the question "Is Salem Relevant?" 
is probably an unanswerable one. For both the "who" and 
the "to what" implied by the question are forever chang- 
ing. We can, however, rephrase the question of relevance 
in ways which do make answers possible. Thus: 

What quality of private life do we wish for 
ourselves? What would be a liveable human 
public life? How can we develop the flexibility 
and inner resources to live in a world of inex- 
orable change and resistance to change? 

In trying to answer these questions, we might well 
remember that Salem College and Academy has a tradition 
which is meaningful to draw upon. The school began in 
what was a frontier community, at a time when only two 
other such institutions for girls existed in America. It 
expanded from a day school into a boarding school for 
girls of the region at a time when education for women in 
the South had a decidedly limited value according to 
society. It became a college in the late 19th century in 
advance of the Progressive Era's redefinition of the role 
of women. It has thus, traditionally, represented not the 
"accepted spirit of the times" but the "new spirit." Indeed 
it is instructive to reexamine that past more closely. As I 
note the entty of January 5, 1785, in the "Records of the 
Moravians in North Carolina" by Adelaide Fries, I read as 
follows : 

Adam Schumacher asks that his Negro girl about 
10 years old be received into the school, for 
which permission is granted. 

What action Schumacher took I do not know. But that 
decision is also our heritage, however long delayed we've 
been in claiming it. 

One caution about questions of relevance. Dean Inge 
once remarked that he who marries the spitit of the age 
soon finds himself a widower. We may protect ourselves 
against too nartow a context of relevance by looking back 
to the sight and sound of the Moravian 18th centuiy 
world out of which we have come. The sight is that of a 
small community clustered around a square, a community 
on the cutting edge of the frontier, yet committed to 
passing on the religious and cultural values of Europe. The 
sound is of a Haydn Sonata being played on a harpsichord 
in the frontier twilight. To return thus at long last to 
Cheever with whom we began: 

In the name of relevance, tuttles may be expend- 
able. But please don't shoot the harpsichord 
player.

Deadline for Class Notes 



MICHEL BOURQUIN is on leave of absence this 
year to take course work toward his Ph.D. in French at 
the University of Connecticut. 

JAMES BRAY has recently been appointed Resident 
Director of the North Carolina Governor's School which 
is held at Salem each summer. The position replaces that 
of Superintendent and entails year-round work in prepara- 
tion for the summer program. 

DR. LOUISE GOSSETT is one of the authors of a 
recently published work, A Bibliographical Guide to the 
Study of Southern Literature. She is also the author of the 
book, Violence in Southern Fiction. Dr. Gossett received 
her B.A. degree from Berea College, her M.A. degree 
from the University of Minnesota, and her Ph.D. from 
Duke University. 

HEWSON MICHIE says that he "is holding down 
the fort" here at Salem after a wonderful summer in 
England with his family. They rented a house in Tunbridge 
Wells in Kent for five weeks and "lived as members of the 
community." The rest of the time was spent visiting rela- 
tives in Rye near Sussex and in Munich. The Michies have 
three girls, ages 9, 7, and 5, and a boy, 3. The children 
loved the experience and one daughter has declared she 
will marry an Englishman. The Michies particularly enjoyed 
the lower food prices there! 

ROBERT WENDT is teaching the anthropology 
course offered at Salem for the first time this year. He has 
done special study in this area at Emory University in the 
Department of Sociology and Anthropology.

Salem in 1957, where she had been a member of the Voice 
Department in the School of Music since 1908, with the 
exception of a number of years spent in New York and 
Paris. In 1913 she married the late Ernest Starr who was 
then head of Salem's English Department. Following her 
retirement, Mrs. Starr taught private pupils until the week 
before her departure to Charlotte.

THE STARS ARE IN OUR FAVOR 



Every planetary auspice prom- 
ises another big year for the 
Salem Alumnae Fund. 1968-69 
was a spectacular success with 
150,240.96 raised from 2,198 
alumnae. This magnificent rec- 
ord represents a 400% increase 
in dollars over the previous 
year and is a real tribute to our 
587 volunteer workers. But we 
can't rely solely on the stars. It 
will take the combined efforts of 
all alumnae to keep the Fund in 
ascendancy this year. 

Peggy Witherington Hester 

Peggy Witherington Hester, '46, is heading the Fund 
as General Chairman for the second year. She will be 
joined in her efforts by a new Special Gifts Chairman, 
Jane Harris Armfield, '31. 

If Salem is to top last year's exciting Fund total, we 
hope to welcome more alumnae to our three existing 
clubs: the Beyond the Square Club, with membership 
open to those who contribute between $100 and |249; 




the Open Doorways Club, which enrolls givers in the 
$250 to $499 category; and the Bell Ringers Club for 
$500 and over donors. 

This year a fourth club, the President's Council, will 
be inaugurated for those who contribute $1,000 or more. 
We hope to welcome many charter members. 

The Special Gift phase will begin this fall before 
the general campaign kicks off in March. The Fund will 
run through June of 1970, with the Class Agent solicita- 
tion being reinforced by ma- 
terial from the Alumnae Office. 



The College is deeply grateful 
to each of the Class Chairmen 
who will devote their time and 
effort to Salem in the months 
ahead. May we also express our 
appreciation to all of you who 
have contributed to the Fund in 
the past, and hope we will have 
the support of each and every 
alumnae during the 1969-70 
campaign.

Club Reports 



Salem's Atlanta Club had a busy and active 1968-69 
keeping Salem in the public eye. Last year's schedule in- 
cluded a coke party for new and prospective students, a 
candle tea and sale, a spring social for alumnae and hus- 
bands, and a luncheon for new and returning students. 

On November 6, 1969, the public was invited to a 
program in the High Museum, Atlanta's Arts and Science 
Museum. The guest speaker was Susan Stit from the staff 
of Old Salem, Inc. Miss Stit presented slides and spoke on 
"Southern Taste in Old Salem: Museum of Early Southern 
Decorative Arts." The program raised money for the 
Alumnae Scholarship Fund. 

Mary Ellen Byrd Thatcher, '45, president of the At- 
lanta Alumnae Club, represented Salem College at the 
inauguration of Arthur Gene Hansen as president of the 
Georgia Institute of Technology on November 20 in 
Atlanta. 



Grace Walker Sanders, '60, recently began a term as 
president of the active Charlotte Club. Proceeds from last 
year's Moravian cookie sale went to the club's scholarship 
for a Mecklenburg girl. 

Last fall the club members entertained new, returning, 
and prospective students at coke parties and held a 
luncheon with Mr. Owen Lewis as guest speaker. In the 
spring, officers were elected at a tea held in the home 
of Closs Jennette Gilmer, '58.

the Raleigh area. 

Harriet Tomlinson Hill, '61, was hostess for the annual 
fall meeting which featured a slide illustrated lecture by 
Mr. Larry Misenheimer from the North Carolina Historic 
Sites Division of the Department of Archives and History. 
On November 12, the Raleigh Club held a tea for 
prospective students at the home of Mary Carleton Scho- 
field, '39. 



In September the Richmond Club greeted Candy 
Stell, '69, who has joined the Admissions Office this year. 
Candy presented a program of slides on Salem. 

Club President, Irene Rose Owen, '64, anticipates 
another successful candle tea to be held in early Decem- 
ber. Last year's tea/bazaar was held at the First Presbyterian 
Church Fellowship Hall and featured a nativity tableau 
by alumnae and Moravian Christmas items. 



At the June meeting of the Rocky Mount Club, a 
handsome gift to the club scholarship fund was given in 
memory of Mary Robbins Oliver, '26. Mrs. Oliver had 
served as Club President for four years, and was a District 
Director of the Alumnae Association at the time of her 
death. 



The Durham-Chapel Hill Club held two meetings 
last year at the home of Club President, Betty Griffin 
Tuggle, '51. The anticipated club project for this year was 
a tea to be opened to friends of alumnae and the general 
public. The proceeds of the project go to the club's scholar- 
ship fund. 



Arrangements were m.ade by Greensboro Club mem- 
bers for the area meeting held at the Sedgfield Coimtry 
Club last March. Dean Hixson was guest speaker at this 
luncheon which was open to all alumnae from neighboring 
cities. 

The project for the Greensboro Club last year was 
a Moravian cookie sale to raise money for its scholarship 
fund. 



A business meeting was held last May by the High 
Point Club. The members voted to sell at least 500 pounds 
of Moravian cookies at Christmas time this year. 

Ruth Bennett Leach, '59, President of the Philadelphia 
Club, reports that distance and traffic make numerous 
meetings and activities virtually impossible in the Phila- 
delphia area. However, the club does enjoy at least two 
meetings a year which bring attention to Salem and 
give alumnae in the widespread area an opportunity to 
get together. 

Raleigh Club President, Mary Scott Best, '60, is eager 
to see a stimulating program initiated in the club which 



The annual meeting of the Tidewater Chapter, 
"Virginia Beach, was held this fall on Saturday, November 
22, at the Golf Ranch Motel. Dean Ivy Hixson and Doris 
Eller, '54, Association President, were guest speakers. 

Jennie Cavenaugh Kitchen, '43, whose term as Club 
President ends this month, added in the report that the 
Virginia Beach Club sells Moravian cookies each fall to 
raise money for the Alumnae Scholarship Fund. 



Another successful bazaar was held by the Wilson 
Club last December. The bazaar features handmade Christ- 
mas items, Salem stars, cookies, candles, and sugar cake. 
Retiring Club President, Betsy Schaum Lamm, '49, said 
that the club members delight in the success of their 
annual bazaars and have great fun working together. 



Salem's class of '73 was welcomed to town by the Win- 
ston-Salem Alumnae Club on September 17. The official 
welcome included a bus tour of the city, culminating with 
a tour and tea at the Reynolda House. The welcoming 
committee was headed by retiring Club President, Mary 
Louise Haywood Davis, '37. Comments from the fresh- 
men have shown how much they appreciated the program 
planned in their behalf. 

On Founder's Day, the Winston-Salem Club held a 
luncheon on campus in the Club Dining Room. Dr. 
Gramley addressed the club members following reports 
from club officers.

Out of 1903 class, numbering 37 gradu- 
ates, there are 14 of us still left, all past 
80 — and most of us sorry there has 
been no cure found for arthritis. We are 
very proud of our grandchildren. SUSIE 
NUNN HINES has her first great-grand- 
child. LOUISE HARPER FOX had great- 
grandchildren some fifteen years ago. We 
hope Louise is in better health and our 
class would love to hear from you, Louise. 

SUSIE NUNN HINES and her husband, 
who is in feeble condition, are still operat- 
ing their tourist home in Mount Airy and 
love it. Susie says she has had a wonderful 
life trying to make others happy. She feels 
the joy of having such a wonderful family 
of children and their families, all so 
talented in music, and leading such won- 
derful lives. 

CARRIE OGBURN GRANTHAM at- 
tended the District Meeting of the Salem 
Alumnae at Sedgefield in the spring and 
writes she was delighted to hear from 
Dean Hixon of all the improvements and 
advances in Salem College. Carrie is still 
as modest and charming as in 1903, and 
she has been one of the outstanding mem- 
bers of our class. She has been active 
in church, family and community life, 
never forgetting Salem. 

LELIA VEST RUSSELL is still active 
in her church, community and missionary 
work in the Harrison Methodist Church 
near Pineville. 

MAUD FOY MOORE'S great ambition 
was to have a literary career and she has 
to a great degree accomplished it. Her 
daughter Elizabeth Moore, a Deputy Clerk 
of the Supreme Court of Craven County, 
hopes to compile her mother's poems — 
many of which have been published — and 
place a copy in Salem Alumnae files. 

Our sympathy to the family of LIZZIE 



STIPE HESTER who died in a nursing 
home in Clemmons. 

I am sorry to report that HENRIETTA 
REID had a light stroke in '68 and is 
now in Taylor Heights Rest Home, Yance- 
ville. North Carolina 27379. Her cousin 
Mrs. Fagg writes that Henrietta is confused 
at times but loves to get mail. Do write 
her. 

PAULINE SESSOMS, now with her 
sister in Texas, has been one of our best 
contributors to Salem College Alumnae 
Fund. We thank you. 

MAY McMINN HOUSTON ANDER- 
SON, we shall always be proud of for 
establishing a Salem College Scholarship 
Fund. In 1960 May married Dr. J. L. 
Anderson and thereby inherited a son. 
Dr. Anderson, Jr., and a daughter Mary 
and three grandchildren. 

It has been a real joy to hear from 
part of our class through the years. I 
have been wondering how many of our 
class would like to make a last memorial 
gift from our class to the Salem Alumnae 
Fund. Perhaps we could raise S500 by 
gifts of from S50 or more, S25, $10 or 
any amount you would love to give. Please 
send your checks to me or directly to 
Salem for the Alumnae Fund. Mark for 
the Class of 1903 and write me before 
Christmas of your action in this and what 
Salem has meant to you. 

Merry Christmas to all.

How good it was to hear from the 
following: 

MARY WATLINGTON ROBERTSON 
is feeling about notmal after two severe 
heart attacks. Her activities are curtailed 
but she praises and obeys her fine doctor. 
Her son and his wife ( Sophie Vaughn's 
daughter) live near and give her much 



joy. Their daughter works in Atlanta 

and loves it. Grandson Jim and his wife 

live in Salem, Va. He is with General 
Electric. 

FLORENCE STOCKTON MASTEN 
says she goes very slowly, but she drives 
her car, and recently made dozens of 
citron tarts for a neighbor's D.A.R. meet- 
ing. So I think she is doing pretty well. 
She is proud of her seven nieces and 
nephews, fourteen great nieces and 
nephews, and fourteen great, great nieces 
and nephews. She glories in their love and 
ministrations. 

EMMA FOUST SCOTT enjoyed a family 
reunion in August of relatives from Texas, 
Virginia, and Georgia and is now plan- 
ning to attend the wedding of grand- 
daughter, Margaret Glass, in October in 
Portsmouth, Va. She joyfully welcomed 
her fourth great grandchild recently. We 
all sympathize with her in the loss of her 
twenty-three year old grandson in Vietnam 
in May. 

RUTH CRIST BLACKWELL is busy 
trying to keep up with her family. For 
instance, granddaughter Ruth and her hus- 
band are in Seoul, Korea, with the Peace 
Corps. Ruth teaches in an all girls college 
of 6,000. Her husband is assistant to the 
chief justice and they live in his home. 
Mary Beth is a senior at Goucher College 
after a summer in Ethiopia with "Cross 
Roads Africa." Scott is teaching at M.I.T. 
and working for his Ph.D. in chemistry. 
His brother Dick is entering Divinity 
school at Duke this fall. Ruth enjoys 
wofking in her garden when she has some 
spare time. 

That traveling GLENN McDONALD 
ROBERTS spent a happy summer with 
daughter Anne McCree and family in 
Oakmont, Pa., after selling her interest in 
her home place to her niece, and dividing 
her possessions among her four children. 
This was hard, but they helped her. This 
fall she will visit son Phil and Caroline 
in Staunton and then go to Orangeburg 
to visit with Dan and Frances. The first 
of the year she will go to Summerville, 
S. C, to Home for Presbyterians. It is 
about fifteen miles from Charleston (and 
son Jack and family) and twenty miles 
from Orangeburg. It is a beautiful town 
and she says the home is also beautiful. 
It is all on one floor and has a lovely 
chapel. 

MARY CULPEPPER FOREMAN says 
she feels 500 years old! But she writes 
interesting and witty letters as always. 
One son and his wife enjoyed Europe this 
summer, and their daughter Ann, who 
spent a year in Paris, is now in N. Y. 
with some Hollins friends. She is studying 
and working with interior decorating. Mary 
recently enjoyed a visit with her sister-in- 
law whom she had not seen in eleven 
years. Eunice was surprised to see one of 
Mary's grandsons with his three little boys. 
Mary has two other great-grandchildren. 

LIZA KNOX WINTERS is happy to 
have daughter Elsa and her daughter Mary 
living quite near her now. Mary spent 
some time with Liza while Elsa moved. 
They were all off to a Traveloge Series at 
State the day she wrote and all had tickets 
for the home basketball series. At that 
time, too, she was planning, as hostess, 
for her Book Club meeting. 

I am sorry to report that SOPHIE 



TATUM VAUGHN has been in the in- 
firmary at Hayes Home for several weeks 
and her condition is not satisfactory. 

A letter from Fan's daughter Jess has 
just come. Fan had a stroke in July and 
early in September she fell and broke her 
hip. Jess brought her to a hospital in 
Montreal. On the 19th of September, an 
artificial joint was put in. She stood the 
operation very well, but her condition is 
not good. This distresses us all deeply. 

I am thankful to be well again. I am 
going back to my volunteer job at the 
hospital October 1. My family is doing 
very well. I am so happy to have Elizabeth 
with me. It is good for both of us. 

My doctor son and his wife and daugh- 
ter are enjoying Canada and a medical 
meeting in Montreal. 

Wish you could read all of these in- 
teresting letters. Thank you for writing. 
Several talked about a reunion! Lets have 
one next year. Love to each one of you.

ANNIE SUE WILSON IDOL is slowly 
but steadily improving since a fall last 
April and 8 weeks in the hospital, due 
to a broken hip. 

LUCY BROWN JAMES attended a 
Family Reunion in her old home-town 
of Greenville, Tenn., in October. Her art 
exhibit here in the summer was most 
beautiful and was enjoyed and greatly 
admired by all those who saw it. Many 
of her paintings were sold to friends and 
admirers. 

ETHEL WHITE REECE writes that she 
has three grandsons in U. S. Service, one in 
Vietnam. She has three great grandsons 
also but no prospects for Salem yet. Her 
husband suffered a severe stroke last year 
and they have now moved to Friends Home 
in Greensboro, N. C, to be near their 
daughter. 

EMORIE BARBER STOCKTON'S son 

Tom is again serving the Dillworth Metho- 
dist Church in Charlotte as its popular 
pastor. Son Dick has recently moved into 
a new home in the Reynolds Development. 
He is Manager of the Norman Stockton, 
Inc. store in the Thruway Shopping Center 
here while Norman, Jr., is associated with 
his father in their downtown store, which 
specializes in high class menswear. Son 
Bob is a very busy and popular lawyer. 

We regret to report the following deaths 
this past year: 

ELIZABETH MAYO JONES and sister 
Evalina Mayo Fleming within a few weeks 
of each other. LURA GARNER PARKER 
after a long illness. LILLIAN CREWS 
NOELL, who had held a responsible po-

Soon after our 60th Class reunion in 
June a delightful lettet was received from 
Miss Jess Byrd, acting Directoi of Alumnae 
Affairs, in which she paid us two distinct 
compliments which are worth passing on 
to you. We were "A good looking bunch 
of girls" in the picture that appeared in 
the Bulletin as we stood around EDITH 
WOMBLES' beautiful table. Then she 
praised our class scrapbook which had 
been compiled by KATHLEEN KORNER 
over a period of years with painstaking 
care and accuracy. Miss Byrd was surprised 
and pleased to see in our scrapbook that 
she was the first person appointed to hold 
the Emma Lehman Chair of Literature. 
The finest accomplishment of our class 
was the establishment of this fund. The 
scrapbook is with the files in The Grace 
Siewers Room in the Library. 

A note from BERTIE LANGLEY CASH 
reports that she is back in her Washington, 
D. C. apartment after a pleasant visit with 
relatives in Winston-Salem. 

KATHLEEN KORNER wrote that her 
great niece from Burlington toured Old 
Salem with her school class last winter and 
was so impressed that now she is eagerly 
awaiting the day when she can go to 
Salem Academy. 

BESSIE WHITE WISE (Mrs. Russell

The incredible Moon 'Walk is over. 
Now begins the report of the where- 
abouts and credible doings of the Class of 
1914. HELEN VOGLER, class president, 
visited Moravian missions of Trinidad and 
other stations last August. She promptly 
wrote about being deeply impressed in 
seeing the Moravian Church in action on 
the Caribbean Islands. 

Having done Europe and South Ameri- 
ca, ETHEL REICH'S zest for travel con- 
tinues. Last summer she did Atlanta, the 
Calloway Gardens, and 'Warm Springs, 
returning home for a breathing spell. Then 
to Gettysburg to receive instruction in 
American history from a professional guide. 
She visited the Amish people and had 
dinner in one of their farm homes. Be- 
tween trips Ethel has her lovely farm home 
on Old Salisbury Road to look after, and 
a welcome to friends who love to drop in. 

It was noted at our Golden Reunion 
that the years had touched gently CLETUS 
MORGAN BLANTON'S school girl com- 
plexion and light brown hair. You will 
be sympathetic to hear that Cletus needs 
help in walking about the house. Her 
sister Nita Morgan Gentil '17, wrote a 
note for her sending love. (1724 'Virginia 
Road, 'Winston-Salem, N. C. 27104). 

GLADYS YELVERTON JULIAN is 
happy in a little house she owns and is 
able to care for herself in St. Petersburg, 
Florida. She has no children and lost her 
husband fifteen years ago. She has a niece 
and two little girls living near her that 
she enjoys. She also has a nephew with 
son and daughter of Tampa to visit her. 
She even goes to night clubs with them. 
Thank you, Gladys, for this cheerful news 
of yourself. 

MAUD KERNER of KernersviUe writes 
life for fifty years with Clay 'Vance Ring 
was a blessing. Since her husband's death. 
May, 1966, her life has revolved about 
her only son, his wife and daughter in 
the same town. Her only daughter died 
in 1964, leaving two sons, now taking 
college in stride, who are mindful of their 
heritage. Granddaughter Ann Hall Ring, 
age 15, now in second year at Salem 
Academy, gives evidence of being gifted. 

In August RUTH POTTS SCOTT of 
Richmond sent a post card of Houdon 
Statue of 'Washington with just a line, 
promising to write later. Let us hope Ruth 
and her loved ones have escaped the 
ravages of Hurricane Camille. (Mrs. 
Samuel Scott, 4619 Devonshire Road, 
Richmond, Va. 23225). 

Mrs. T. C. Byrura, Jr., 218 "West Eden 
Street, Edenton, writes that her dear 
mother-in-law, Mrs. LILLIAN FORE-

HAND BYRUM, died June 5, 1965. It 
is late, but our sympathy. 

HOPE COOLIDGE of Concord, Mass., 
modestly disclaims receiving great honors. 
But it is no secret that Hope has won 
laurels along the way such as the dietitian's 
prize. There is sadness for the loss of her 
nearest relative, a cousin, who died June, 
1969. But Hope is not the brooding kind. 
She maintains her home according to the 
Salem fundamentals of good housekeeping. 
She does volunteer hospital work making 
visits out of Concord. 

MARGARET BLAIR McCUISTON 
writes as if a fairy queen waved her magic 
wand over all the folks for one July week. 
She enjoyed a house party with all her 
children and grandchildren under one roof 
in a roomy cottage which daughter Marian 
and husband own at Ocean (lity, N. J. 

Quoting BESS HYMAN GUION, 311 
Johnson Street, New Bern, "The Spring 
Salem College Bulletin inspires me. I did 
not know my Pat has had surgery. I must 
write her (Mrs. Karl Fetzer, 222 Fairfax 
Drive, Winston-Salem). Bess is one of 
those active people. She enjoys keeping 
up with eight grandchildren. Her husband, 
who retired eight years ago, is a tre- 
mendous help with the Antique Shop. 
Loyalty and best wishes always from Bess. 

NELLIE MESSICK and surgeon hus- 
band. Dr. R. A. Moore, (2415 Warwick 
Road, Winston-Salem) are living a happy 
relaxed life now that the physician has 
retired. Their older son is a neuro-surgeon 
in Wilmington. The younger son is in 
Winston-Salem in the Building and Loan 
business. There is a Meredith College 
graduate in the family whose daughter is 
now a Meredith freshman. "Doc " may not 
eat an apple every day, but he does play 
golf almost every day. With interesting 
grandchildren dancing in and out, Nellie 
is keeping the bounce she was born with. 
There may be no computer record of it, 
but there is a beautiful pictorial history of 
Old Salem on library shelves that Nellie 
worked with a committee to get printed.

was the beloved pastor, and Mrs. H. 
Montague was an adored Sunday School 
teacher of teen age girls. Myrtle, a widow 
of fifteen years, has no grandchildren, but 
her two sons and their wives are devoted 
to her. She enjoys driving her car on 
short trips. She will never forget Winston- 
Salem friends, but Rich Square has good 
church friends, too. 

August 19, CARRIE E. MADDREY 
wrote she considers herself a resident, not 
a patient of Manor Care, Winston-Salem, 
as she does not require nursing service. 
Carrie is recovering from a fractured hip 
received months ago, and depends on a 
wheel chair and walker. Her sister who 
had been in the HoUins College dean's 
office for thirty-two years died in March. 
She had done graduate work at Columbia 
University. Carrie has had interesting ex- 



periences as hostess in New York tea 
rooms, college dietitian, manager of city 
school lunch rooms, and Y.W.C.A. assist- 
ant cafeteria manager. Carrie has an apart- 
ment at 633 Holly Avenue, Winston- 
Salem. "Salem College is still my love," 
she says. 

NANCY HAYES REYNOLDS is Mrs. 
Robert D. Gartrell, 754 Birchwood Drive, 
Wycoff, New Jersey. Her specialty at Salem 
was music, which she continued with some 
concert work in Atlanta until after her 
marriage in 1918. Mr. Gartrell has had 
much success in hybridizing azaleas. Jeanne, 
a Salem graduate, is editor of a trade 
magazine sponsored by her husband. Betty 
Anne, beautiful and talented, was taken 
by death, March, 1969, leaving her son, 
age 14, with Jeanne and her family who 
own a chalet in Switzerland. Nancy paints 
portraits and does stylized flowers in 
ceramics, keeping two kilns busy. Their

Kindest regards to any Salemite who may 
remember Nancy.

Librarian, who has won a number of 
honors. The librarian's older son won a 
scholarship to Furman where he is now 
a junior. The younger son is a sophomore

still trying to do all the good they can. 

ADDIE FINCH McKNIGHT, widow

the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" — writes 
of success and happiness in her years of 
social work and nurse to those in need 
of mental therapy. Frances studied at 
Oxford University in England in 1967. 
While in England she visited her first 
cousin. Sir William Coldstteam, professor 
of art at the University of London. Frances 
is a widow of three years with memories 
of thirty-five years with a congenial help-

O. Walker, Box 365, Asheboro, N. C.) 
Class Poet, 1912-1914, Literary Editor of

little kindnesses which most others leave 
undone" as recorded in Sights and In- 
sights, writes she regrets missing June 7th 
reunion, but left that day to visit her 
daughter in Pennsylvania. Hopes to join 
us next time. Had a September visit to 
Salem. Found many changes, but the same

sugar cakes.

On a short trip to the mountains this 
summer we spent the night at Black 
Mountain. After dinner we went up to the 
Monte Vista Hotel and had a nice visit 
with LILLIAN BLUE McEACHERN. She 
looked fine and was packing for a short 
stay at Raeford, her old home town. 

MARY FEIMSTER OWEN sent her

She writes, "It seems strange not to have

Another one of our group who has

She was in Winston-Salem for a visit this

land, Fla. She had lost her eldest son, Tom 
Coleman, in World War II. In December 
she is planning to move and her address 
will be: Mrs. T. H. Coleman, Riverside 
Presbyterian Aprs., 1045 Oak Street, Jack- 
sonville, Fla. Our deepest sympathy. 

A nice long letter was received from 
HENRIETTA WILSON FERGUSON who 
has moved back to Winston-Salem. Her 
address is Mrs. George Ferguson, Rt. 1, 
Murray Road, Winston-Salem 27106. They 
will be in Winston-Salem most of the 
time but hope to spend the colder months 
in Florida. 

HELEN LONG FOLLETT writes, "this 
year has been one of great sorrow and 
also one of much happiness." In early 
May she was called to Rockingham, N. C, 
for the critical illness of her sister, Mrs. 
Howard Hartzell, who passed away on 
May 12th. In July and August they were 
in Maine and returned to Rockingham 
later for the wedding of her great niece 
and god child, Sally Marshall Barwick. 
Her plans for the fall and winter are 
indefinite — perhaps another visit back 
home.

BELLE LEWTER WEST, writing a 
short note, told me of the loss of her 
sister Florine on August 29. Belle and I 
had planned to spend a few days together 
at Salem this fall, but because of pressing 
business details this will be cancelled. 
Any of you care to join us in the spring? 

You may wonder why my cards were 
mailed from Morehead City. We were 
there for our fall beach vacation. We make 
it to Topsail in July with our son and 
his family and this one in the fall. I am 
still recuperating from my fall and by 
next spring my husband and I are plan- 
ning to start traveling in earnest. 

Thanks for so many responding on time. 
We do wish more of you would write. 
Some of you who never write — get busy! 
Best wishes.

It would seem our Golden Anniversary 
inspired 1919 to take off to parts un- 
known. 

To Greece and the islands by boat went 
CAROLYN HACKNEY EDWARDS and 
sister, Lois, just a party of two, for a 
wonderful and most interesting trip. 

Though the details are scarce, EUNICE 
HUNT SWASEY and LE GRAHAM 
MARSH traveled to Canada, in August, 
for a relaxing vacation. 

MAGGIE MAE and Ralph Stockton 
spent six weeks during June and July 
visiting the Grand Canyon and California, 
finding the scenery all they had expected. 

On September 11th, DORIS COZART 
SCHAUM and good friend, Janie Griffin, 
flew to Scotland for a month of travel. 
They will visit London and Amsterdam 
before returning in October. 

MARY McPHAIL DAVIS McGREGOR 
s with a party of people visiting Holland 
at this writing. 

Now where did MAINA VOGLER go? 
She promised to let us hear. 

At home, MARY RAPER is still manag- 
ing a large home for her mother and 
sick brother, with nurses needed for her 
mother's care. Friends in Lexington marvel 
at her steadfast ability. 

On the go, as usual, FRANCES and 
Farrell White spent a week during 
the summer with a niece. Frances Gibson, 
at Columbus, Georgia. They had lunch at 
the top of the Regency Hotel in Atlanta 
on their way down to Columbus. In 
August, Frances stayed at home for a 
week to keep the new, year-old, grand- 
daughter, while parents and brothers va- 
cationed at Pawley's Island, S. C. Later on, 
Frances and Farrell rested up from baby- 
tending at Crescent Beach, S. C. 

Tust now, if the rain allows, MAR- 
JORIE DAVIS ARMSTRONG plans to 
take her older brother, Wiley, to Topsail 
20 



Beach for some needed quiet. Wiley lost 
his wife several weeks ago. Marjorie loves 
to concoct delicious meals and had full 
opportunity a few days ago when son Joe 
brought his wife Jane and five children 
for a week-end. 

MAG NEWLAND is at Little Switzer- 
land before closing the cottage for the 
season and had Dr. Helen IJarton and 
Miss Jane Summerell with her. 

On our way to Sapphire Lake in July, 
we stopped off at Little Switzerland to 
check on MAG NEWLAND — in fact, 
we watched the moon landing with her. 
She took us to the old McDowell house 
near Marion for a meal. This old home of 
her grandparents had some unusual fea- 
tures — now a Roadside Inn. 

We, of 1919, have at least one grand- 
daughter at Salem this year. Linda Rose 
from Raleigh is the granddaughter of 
MARY EDWARDS ROSE. Let me hear 
if there are others. 

There will be three of our class in 
Florida later on. MABEL CLAIRE 
BROWN MARTIN and husband stay at 
the Princess Martha Hotel, 4th Street at 
1st Avenue, St. Petersburg; while MAG- 
GIE MAE and Ralph Stockton will spend 
two months in their apartment at Fort 
Lauderdale, coming home in time for 
Christmas. Of course, MARY LANCAS- 
TER BROADDUS lives at Lakeland. So if 
any of you are visiting Florida, don't 
think you are seeing ghosts — it could 
be one of us. 

Please keep the news coming in.

From our President, EDITH HANES 
SMITH: 

Greetings to all members of the Class 
of 1923 — freshmen through seniors. Are 
you finding, as I am, that as the years 
pass, thoughts are turning more and more 
often to those days we were together at 
Salem? My husband, who has attended the 
last three reunions, asked me the other 
day if the next one was in 1970 or 1971? 
Even though it's 1973, that is just around 
the corner. Let each of us begin now 
thinking toward it and planning to see that 
our 50th reunion is just as perfect as our 
attendance can make it. Also let each of 
us plan toward helping reach the goal 
of a $10,000 scholarship with our 1923 
Memorial Scholarship. As of October 1, 
1969. the amount stands at $4,907.25. 
Regarding the Alumnae Fund: 

For the 1968-69 school year the trustees 
authorized a new approach to the matter 
of fund raising for the pressing needs of 
the institution. The new approach certainly 
resulted in excellent returns if one may 
judge by the report in the last Bulletin. 
Our class organization is affected to this 
extent: we have a Class Fund Chairman 
and Class Fund Agents. The girls who 
gave our class this wonderful service last 
year are: 



Class Chairman: Elizabeth Pfohl Campbell 
Class Agents: 

Raye Dawson Bissette 
*Ruth Correll Brown 

Dorothy Kirk Dunn 

Queen Graeber McAtee 
•Rosa James 
'Bright McKenie Johnson 

Sallie Tomlinson Sullivan 
*Mary Cline Warren 

The agents starred are serving again this 
year under new Chairman, Birdie Drye 
Smith. 

The Class of 1919 in the Academy, 
which became the Class of 1923 in the 
College, had its fiftieth reunion in April. 
The Salem Academy Bulletin carried a 
picture of BESSIE PFOHL CAMPBELL 
speaking for the class at the luncheon 
with FLORENCE CREWS MILLER, 
BIRDIE DRYE SMITH, GERALDINE 
FLESHMAN PRATT, BLANCHE MAY 
VOGLER, LIL CUTLAR FARRIOR, and 
CAROLEEN LAMBETH KEITH at the 
table with her. It was delightful to see 
this many of our class together again. 
Lil took the group to dinner the night 
before at the Salem Tavern Dining Rooms. 
DOT BARGER BURKE had planned to 
attend but could not at the last moment. 

Two members of our class, SALLY 
TOMLINSON SULLIVAN and JERRY 
FLESHMAN PRATT, enjoyed trips during 
the late winter and spring. Sally and Roy 
had a Caribbean Cruise and Jerry went 
to Europe. 

Three Alumnae Fund envelopes brought 
bits of information: RUTH CANNON 
WILSON told of RUTH CROWELL 
DOWDY'S change of address in Char- 
lotte; ALICE RULES FARMER made her 
contribution in memory of her sister 
Catherine Rulfs Hess whom all of 
us remember well; LULA STOCKARD 
BYNUM wrote "My husband, former 
President of Bynura Printing Co., has 
retired. Two children, Frank, Jr., with 
Package Products Co. in Charlotte, and a 
daughter, Mrs. Thos. L. Worthington, of 
Florence, S. C. Three grandsons." 

It was good to see so many names on 
the Class Alumnae Fund list in the last 
Bulletin. We wish each one would send 
us some personal news about herself and 
family. 

Sadness came to FLORENCE CREWS 
MILLER in the death of her sister. You 
saw in the August Bulletin that KITTY 
MAY MARTIN, with us the freshman 
year, died. 

The month of June deserves space be- 
cause of the very important events in the 
lives of Edith, Estelle and Bessie. EDITH 
HANES SMITH and Albert have retired 
from their work as librarian and business- 
man; ESTELLE McCANLESS HAUPERT 
and Ray retired as first lady and President 
of Moravian College and Theological Semi- 
nary in Bethlehem, Pa.; BESSIE PFOHL 
CAMPBELL was elected by the alumnae 
to be a member of the Board of Trustees 
of Salem Academy and College, The three 
girls received well deserved recognition 
through the press — clippings have been 
sent to ROSA JAMES for our Class Scrap 
Book. 

Bessie represented Salem at the inaugura- 
tion of Clarence Cyril Walton as president 
of the Catholic University of America on 



Sunday, November 9, in Washington, 
D. C. 

Many of you probably had dehghtful 
trips during the summer. We know that 
DOROTHY KIRK DUNN and Brenner 
went West into Canada. Dorothy told us 
about their plans when she made a con- 
tribution to our Memorial Scholarship in 
memory of MARGARET WHITAKER'S 
husband, Graham Home. BLANCHE MAY 
VOGLER had a North Cape Cruise. 
BRIGHT McKEMIE JOHNSON and 
Frank visited friends in Alabama and 
Georgia. 

EDITH HANES SMITH and Albert 
stopped by to see your correspondent in 
August. They had stopped by MARGARET 
WHITAKER HORNE'S home in Warren- 
ton and JULIA BETHEA NANNY'S home 
in Henderson but found neither at home. 
After leaving Winston-Salem they stopped 
by ROSA JAMES' in Mt. Pleasant, but 
she was on a trip. Edith's son, Albert, Jr., 
is an Assistant Professor in the department 
of French at the University of Florida at 
Gainesville. Albert has two girls and two 
boys. Edith's daughter Virginia has two 
boys and lives nearby. 

In Sept. MARGARET WHITAKER 
HORNE visited her daughter, Frances 
Home Avera, who lives in 'Winston-Salem. 
She had seen or heard from a number 
of our class and gave the following news: 
KATHERINE DENNY HORNE has mov- 
ed from outside of Red Springs into the 
town. "Denny's" daughter. Flora Graham 
Home Kimmich, received her doctor's 
degree in June in German history. She 
and her husband live in New York City 
where she teaches in City College and he 
at Columbia University. Denny's other 
daughter Katherine teaches in the Boston 
area. Her son, Henry Home, III, is an 
engineer in electronics in Orlando, Fla., 
and has two girls. RAYE DAWSON 
BISSETTE enjoyed a trip through the 
garden areas of the deep South in the 
spring. FAIR POLK MITCHELL, who 
lives in Warrenton, has a daughter mar- 
ried to a neuro surgeon in Jacksonville, 
Fla. Margaret's daughter, Elizabeth, was 
with her and told of her two boys and 
one girl who keep both mother and grand- 
mother busy in their active life on a 
country place near Durham. 

LUCILLE PICKENS BRUTON (Mrs. 
Harold G.) is now at a new address: 609 
English Road, High Point, N. C. 27260. 

ESTELLE McCANLESS HAUPERT and 
Ray will be in Winston-Salem to at- 
tend the Moravian Music Foundation meet- 
ing in October. It will be fun to have a 
chance to visit with them and hear about 
special plans they may have now that they 
have retired from a demanding schedule. 

Please let us hear from you.

ville, Va. 24541. 

Thank each of you who contributed to 
the 1969 Alumnae Fund. We had a very 
nice increase in the number of participants. 
If you have forgotten to send your gift in, 
please do so today. Then you'll be so 
happy to have this added deduction when 
April 15, 1970, arrives! 

AGNES CARLTON and ALLENE 
FRAZIER DALTON are making the Old 
Salem trip to New Orleans and surround- 
ing area during October. Agnes has also 
been to Charleston, West 'Virginia, and to 
Housatonia, Massachusetts, where she at- 
tended a Tanglewood Concert given by 
the Boston Symphony Orchestra. 

NANCY ARCHER MICHAUX and 
husband Buck had a wonderful stay in 
Hawaii during May. They found "island 
hoppin' " fascinating as each was so 
beautiful and different. Her oldest grand- 
daughter, Cathy Hall, graduated from 
Sweet Briar in June. The second daugh- 
ter Tina will be a sophomore there this 
year. The youngest, Anne, is to enter 
there in 1970. Tina will make her debut 
in Richmond during December as Cathy 
had. They are the daughters of Nancy 
Poindexter Hall and Charles C. Hall, Jr., 
of Alexandria, Virginia. 

ELIZABETH C. BROWN has retired 
after thirty-three years with the Federal 
Government but finds herself even busier 
than while she was "on the job". Her 
church activities are many and varied. She 
serves as elder, Bible teacher, and chairman 
of the church's Christian Education Com- 
mittee. In the late spring Ruth Clark 
Brown Tilton, '26, and husband visited 
her. 

CORA FREEZE continues to take care 
of her elderly aunt, now nearly ninety 
years old, in her home. She plays some 
bridge also. 

As usual, POLLY HAWKINS HAMIL- 
TON gives very active service to Salem. 
She is now on the Alumnae House Com- 
mittee with daughter Vicki as adviser. 
The House is in good condition for the 
coming year. The BIG thing accomplished 
was getting electric heat installed. The 
office has been repainted and draperies 
have been changed. New linens have been 
purchased. Please come visit and stay over 
night! She and Gene have made several 
trips to Florida, to the North Carolina 
mountains, and to Pawley's Island. They 
have also had the pleasure of showing 
Salem to visiting friends. 

CATHERINE HARPER RUSSELL had 
the thrill of watching granddaughter, 
Catherine Russell Stribbing, graduate from 
Salem Academy this year. 

I had such a nice telephone chat with 
MARY HOLLAND during the summer. 
We talked chiefly about the work of the 
Moravian Bands through the years. So 
many of her family have played, but she 
had to stand on the side lines because 
those were the days when no girls were 
allowed to join. She seems to be so much 
stronger and better than she has been. 



After a stay in the Baptist Hospital, 
THELMA JACKSON BIAS spent some 
time prior to the summer season in getting 
her Cherry Grove cottage ready to rent. 
Now that the fall days are here ELGIE 
NANCE MYERS and Nash are visiting 
the Cottage and having a grand time with 
the Biases. 

The Myers family — including the four 
grandchildren — had a wonderful reunion 
during the summer days. 

RUTH JAMES is really a "gadabout" 
as she serves as a hostess for some of the 
Moore Tours — Mexico in February, Deep 
South in March, Southern California in 
June, Nova Scotia in July, New England 
in August, Northern and Southern Cali- 
fornia in September. She adds that she'll 
stay put for the winter months. (Want 
to bet? ) 

MARY McKELVIE FRY has planned 
several trips to the Salem Campus and to 
"Old Salem" but something has prevented 
each journey. (Do hope for a 1970 suc- 
cessful visit.) She stays so very busy with 
her varied community and civic organiza- 
tions and her grandchildren. 

IRENE McMINN CANTRELL writes 
that her son, retired from the Navy as a 
Commander, is now back in school work- 
ing on his master's and is planning to 
teach later. Also she tells that LUCILLE 
GLENN TYLER came through Brevard on 
her way to Atlanta to visit her son and 
to celebrate her birthday. (Best wishes to 
Lucille and to Irene who had cakes during 
the same week.) 

RUTH MOCK SCHMIDT is now living 
in Walkertown with her sister. After re- 
tiring from her New York Hospital work 
she stayed at Port Charlotte, Florida, for 
five years before the move here. 

Surry Roberts has returned from Viet 
Nam and is doing general practice at Sea 
Level, N. C, until his residency is avail- 
able at Chapel Hill. "E. P." PARKER 
ROBERTS and Watson have been down 
to Sea Level as Watson is much better this 
summer. Due to the extreme noise created 
by the East-West Highway in Durham, 
"E. P." writes that they are placing their 
house on the market for sale for com- 
mercial purposes. 

The month of June found ELIZABETH 
RAUHUT in Florida having a very pleas- 
ant time. During October she plans to go 
on an "Autumn Foliage" Tour of New 
England. 

TABBA REYNOLDS WARREN found 
the summer in her Fort Lauderdale home 
to be very comfortable due to the ocean 
breezes and the air conditioner. She and 
Charlie will be in their New York apart- 
ment for late winter and early spring. 
They are looking over travel brochures and 
may head for Spain or even South Africa. 

ELIZABETH ROOP BOHLKEN has 

been recuperating from surgery and illness, 
and hopes soon to be feeling much strong- 
er. Her family of three children and seven 
grandchildren has helped brighten these 
days. She has completed three years service 
as Virginia DAR State Historian. 

MARY STEPHENS HAMBRICK re- 
ports that a girl from her church is a 
Salemite this year. She thoroughly enjoyed 
the concert given in Roxboro by the Bell 
Choir of the Home Moravian Church. 

21 



(Should a similar concert be given in 
your community, be sure to attend! ) A 
nephew, George Puryear, is a dentistry 
student in Chapel Hill. Three nephews 
who are Louise Stephens Forth's step-sons 
are attending Duke. All are planning to 
study medicine. 

ELEANOR TIPTON ROYAL and hus- 
band Robert have had, as always, a busy 
summer. They had much fun on a camp- 
ing trip at Fontana for they traveled with 
their son and daughter-in-law. (Oh, how 
it rained!) On Sunday, October 5, their 
United Methodist Church in Salemburg 
had its Harvest Day and burned its 
mortgage. Both of them are very, very 
active in their church. 

By the time this Bulletin is published 
MARGARET WILLIFORD CARTER 
hopes to be up and around again. Inflama- 
tion of the leg has for some weeks kept 
her in bed. (Do hope you'll be so much 
better that Don can be "fired" as Chief 
cook and bottlewasher! ) In August there 
was a reunion of the Carter Clan — 
fourteen strong — in Rocky Mount and 
at Manteo to see The Lost Colony. 

As for me, I am fine and have had a 
marvelous summer with the highlight being 
a month spent in Montana visiting friends 
who live in Cut Bank. They really gave 
me a perfect taste of western hospitality. 
They had so many things planned to do 
and see. Our travels covered about three 
thousand miles in Montana, Idaho, Wash- 
ington, and as far North as Jasper in 
Canada. The scenery was gorgeous — 
mountains, glaciers, fresh snow, lakes, 
rivers, waterfalls, flowers, roads (straight 
and curvy), grain covered prairies, grazing 
cattle, cities and small communities — all 
under the blue sky. I saw wild animals — 
elk, deer, moose, mountain sheep, geese, 
a mama bear and her cubs, and a rattle- 
snake. I ate delicious food — pancakes 
cooked in a camping ground, ham and 
eggs at the top of the Tram at Jasper, 
salmon freshly flown in from Kodiac, 
Alaska; and lots of other attractive meals. 
The impressions that stand out for me 
are the sky, distance and friends. 

Best wishes to each of you. Please write 
soon.

November. She writes that her eldest son, 
James Howard, Jr., is a partner in a 
Norfolk law firm and also serves as a 
substitute judge. Her son Llewellyn is in 
private dental practice in Richmond and 
teaches part-time at the Medical College 
of 'Virginia Dental School. Her husband 
James has retired after fourteen years as 
Mayor of Crewe, Va., but is still active in 
church and civic work. 

MAUD MAYS GRISWOLD'S husband 
Dan, a geologist, found that retirement 
22 



was not for him. After 30 years with the 
Soil Conservation Department of Agri-

Engineers. They have two daughters and 
three grandchildren. Maud enjoys gen- 
ealogy, collecting books and Americana as 
hobbies. 

After a wonderful trip to the Holy Land 
last February, ELIZABETH REYNOLDS 
was making plans for a similar trip in 
October. The first trip resulted in twenty 
"Sonnets from the Holy Land." She is also 
writing a book on "The Adoption of Older 
Children." 

RUTH BROWN TILTON and Leroy 
remrned March 8th from a 6,000 mile 
trip which included visits in Alabama, 
Texas, and Florida.

Our contact with so many far flung 
and near by Alumnae during the last year 
has brought more than one rewarding 
result — great response of many partici- 
pants in the Alumnae Fund Campaign and 
many welcomed letters from the girls. 
Each felt excitement in our total results 
from the 1968-69 Alumnae Fund but took 
little credit for her own individual effort. 

SARAH TURLINGTON wrote, "Salem 
is dear to my heart. I earnestly believe in 
small liberal arts colleges and hope they 
will long endure. My plans are to retire 
this year but to continue living in Wash- 
ington for sometime. I am looking forward 
to more leisure that will include a trip 
to Salem." 

News from BELLE GRAVES 
WHITAKER tells us her son Allen, III 
is a doctor now interning at Emory in

school in June and Sybel Hawkins lives 
in Camp Lejeune, N. C. She and her 
husband, a Lt. Col., have four children. 

EVELYN DAVIS DUNN lost her 
father,, Mr. J. T. Davis, age 92, this 
spring. Sometime later she and her hus-

month's trip to Europe. 

Sadness came to classmates DORIS 
WALSTON THOMPSON and SARAH 
KINCAID MILSTEAD. Doris says she has 
been ill with several collapsed vertebrae 
and Sarah's husband has not been well. 

LAVERNE WATERS FULTON in-

responsibilities recently which will entail 
traveling part of the year. 

LETITIA CURRIE, always prompt and 
efficient, was very modest in her recent 
letter concerning the good work she has 
been doing for Salem. 

A recent visit by your correspondent 
with MARY GRIFFITH THOMPSON 
now living in Winston-Salem was most 
enjoyable. She is so happy being back 
home again with family and friends here. 
We reminisced of our happy, unexpected 
meeting many years ago, 34 to be exact, 
in Rio de Janeiro. She and her husband 
were on their way to live in Buenos Aires, 
had a day in the harbor, looked us up, 
and suddenly she was there at my door. 
I can assure you that I began to wonder

III, a graduate of Duke, has been employed 
by the Durham Legal Aid Clinic. Her 
husband, who is Edward Brau of Bremen, 



Germany, received his doctorate from 
Duke. The couple is living in Washington. 

Sarah Graves sent news of MARTHA 
LANEY WATKINS of Boone, North Caro- 
lina. When Martha's three children were 
of school age, she returned to school and 
teceived her Master's Degree and taught 
for ten years. In April, 1968, Martha 
underwent open heart surgery. She does 
not expect to return to teaching but wants 
most of all to enjoy her family which 
includes three wonderful grandchildren. 

When I was in Nags Head in April for 
the State Delta Kappa Gamma Meeting, 
I saw FRANCES CALDWELL. She was 
proud of her daughter's (a Salem grad- 
uate) achievements. 

I saw the former NELL COOKE 
CHANDLER this summer in Greensboro. 
Nell is now Mrs. William Thompson. She 
looked wonderful. Before Nell left Greens- 
boro for Phoenix, Arizona, she was or- 
ganist at the First Moravian Church. 
EDITH FULP WAGGONER, who is or- 
ganist at Love's Methodist Church, wrote 
that she was anticipating Nell's visit to 
North Carolina and they would of course 
visit Salem. 

ANNA PRESTON SHAFFNER'S four 
children are scattered in all directions. 
She writes that "in the past two years 
three have been married to the kind of 
charmers I would have picked for them 
had the choice been mine." 

Note how the news switches from chil- 
dren to grandchildren! BRONA SMOTH- 
ERS MASTEN has five. MARGARET 
MASTEN BOWLES is happy to have her 
three grandsons home from the West 
Indies where their parents, Bruce and 
Martha Bowles Weber ('58), were mis- 
sionaries. Martha continues to work full 
time as a bookkeeper. 

ELIZABETH WILLIS MOORE, who has 
two grandchildren, continues to enjoy her 
music and plays duos with friends on her 
two pianos. 

Our thoughts go to MILDRED 
"SHORTY" BILES THOMAS, whose hus- 
band died in Winston-Salem on April 22, 
and to the family of BELLE DENMARK 
BLUM. JULIA MEARS BECKMAN of 
Sumter, South Carolina, sent clippings 
from the Sumter Daily Item telling 
of the tragic automobile accident which 
took the lives of Belle and three of her 
friends. Belle, the owner of Blum's Ladies 
Shop in Sumter, was returning from a 
fashion show in Charlotte when the col- 
lision with a logging truck occurred. She 
is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Paul 
Rundbaken of Columbia, South Carolina, 
and a son David of the Air Force. 

GLADYS HEDGECOCK SANDRIDGE, 
who lives in Arizona and loves it, writes 
that she and her husband lost their only 
child, a son last Thanksgiving. She was 
looking forward to visiting Salem this 
past summer and to seeing her grand- 
daughter in New Jersey.

HAZEL WATTS FLACK was a great 
source of news this time. She is teaching 
again this fall, after a summer of building 
and furnishing a new room and (doing 
much redecorating. Her family vacationed 
in the mountains with their girls, adding 
trips to the beach and to a church retreat. 
In August, a few '45'ers gathered at 
Hazel's "for lunch. She took them to Salem 
Tavern, and they exchanged news of varied 
activities about themselves and others in 
the class. Jess Byrd joined them much to 
their delight. 

MARY ELLEN BYRD THATCHER 
continues active in the Atlanta Alumnae 
group and reported that her Betsy will be 
a freshman at Duke this year. 

HELEN PHILLIPS COTHRAN and 
Bill brought their attractive three by to say 
"hello". 

NANCY JANE HELSABECK FOWLER 
has held her youth, looking lovely and 
serene. Her oMest (daughter has finished 
college and has recently returned from a 
trip around the world. Her second daughter 
is to be a sophomore at Guilford. Her son 
is in junior high. Her Jack is fine. 

NELL DENNING has moved to Colum- 
bia, S. C, changing jobs. Nell looks grand, 
gay and all settled in her new apartment 
at Hampton Park Apts., 1-5, 4425 Blossom 
St. Nell reports that "her children" are 
fine and growing up just like all children 
will do. I was sorry to miss chatting with 
Nell when she was in Ala. My daughter, 
though, had the pleasure of talking with 
her. Nell had talked to ELIZABETH 
GUDGER WILLIAMSON by phone, and 
reported that Gudger's oldest daughter 
graduated at Salem this spring and her 
second daughter is a junior at Salem this 
year. 

ANGELA TAYLOR PEPPER'S son 
John is a freshman at Brevard. We were 
sorry to learn that Angela broke her leg 
last year but glad she is back to normal 
after being in a wheel chair for some 
time. 

JANE FRAZIER COKER wrote that 
she sang in two operas in Brevard this 
summer. Her Carol must be following in 
Jane's talented footsteps as she entered 
N. C. School of the Arts as a senior in 
September. The family's new address is 
516 Drayton Ave., Spartanburg, S. C.

MARY FRANCES McNEELY chaperon- 
ed a group of girls at the beach and 
vacationed in the north. She saw ADELE 
CHASE SELIGMAN in New York, as did 
MARGARET BULLOCK KNOX. Margaret 
is well again after summer surgery. Adele's 
eldest daughter has graduated from college, 
her second is a sophomore at UCLA, and

NANCY MOSS VICK comments that 
she has enjoyed several trips to Old Salem 



and to the campus since their older daugh-

band have a new home in Warrenton, Va. 
Their son Robert, 13, attends Episcopal 
Private School in Lynchburg, Va., and their 
daughter is in school at Middleburg, 'Va. 

From Molly: 

My older son entered Davidson in Sep- 
tember, and the younger one is a senior in 
high school. 

We have a reunion coming up soon, 
girls, so keep it in mind. Send us any 
address changes. 

From Josephine: 

All of us express our deepest sympathy 
to Molly in the loss of her mother last 
April. Mrs. Boseman endured many week- 
ends with a wild, noisy group of us and 
never complained. 

My two older daughters and I toured 
several colleges this summer. Our visit to 
Salem was most delightful. All the new 
buildings, redecoration and renovation 
everywhere entices all of us to return in 
June for our 25th reunion. I drove up 
South Main and saw 25 years of progress 
blooming on all sides. Some of our old 
landmarks have vanished, including the 
old P. O. Begin getting ready now, girls. 
Our 25th reunion should be our largest 
and best. 

It was good to chat on the phone with 
B. J. JONES HOLMES. She was sewing 
when I called, getting her son ready for 
a trip to Colorado. Her oldest is a senior 
at Reynolds High and her youngest goes 
to kindergarten. 

The Atlantic beaches held the main 
attraction again this summer for most of 
us. MILDRED GARRISON CASH, 
MOLLY BOSEMAN BAILEY, MARY 
FRANCES McNEELY and many, many 
others enjoyed the surf and the sun. All 2l 
McLauchlins go to Pawley's Island, S. C, 
every summer for the fourth week in July. 
In case you are there at that time, search 
for an Alabama car tag and come visit. We 
rent several cottages to accommodate our 
large clan and have a marvelous week of 
fun and sunburn! My eyes get weak from 
my straining to i'md a familiar face — 
some of you must go to Pawley's too.

ture Company. The High Point Enterprise 
of July 27 carried a feature story about

the lovely picture of her accompanying it.

As a new school year begins, I want 
to remind all of you that Christmas is near 
and I will be expecting news from you 
during the holidays. It's the season to 
correspond — right? 

I was delighted to get a call from JEAN 
PATTON FRENCH recently. She is living 
in Chester, Va., just a few miles from 
Richmond. We plan to get together soon 
and catch up on a few years. Her new

PEGGY BONNER SMITH and Clar-

LOLA DAWSON GILLEBAARD writes 
that all is well with her, and she wishes 
that more from Salem would come to 
Houston. 

You girls of '52 might be interested to 
know that I type these notes on the same 
poor old typewriter that I had at Salem. I 
think it made more trips up and down 
Bitting stairs than I did. It is about to die 
of old age, it's symptoms being sticking, 
jumping, etc. If the address on your Christ- 
mas card from me looks a little spastic, I 
hope that you will just smile and remem- 
ber that "old faithful" did have some 
better days. 

Thanks to those of you who sent in 
news. It was a pleasure hearing from you!

I received a nice, long letter from 
VIRGINIA HERMAN (Mrs. George S. 
Hiles, Jr.). I would really enjoy this 
assignment as class correspondent if all 



of you '53'ers would follow suit. Virginia 
and family moved "cross country" in June 
from Waverly, Tenn., to Walnut Creek, 
Calif. (367 Caravelle Drive). Her husband 
is with DuPont and they have "two, tall, 
slender blondes, 9 and 11." 

Virginia said that CARRIE BORGES 
VANDER ELY JONES is still at Virginia 
Beach and has 5 children. 

Also in Virginia (Annadale) is 
THERESA HEDRICK SHERMAN — 
Stu's a Colonel! 

JOANNE BELL ALLEN represented 
Salem at the inauguration of Dr. William 
Wagoner as President of Wilmington Col- 
lege, May 1, 1969. 

ANN HOBBS HELSABECK has a new 
daughter, Alice Ann, born July 2, 1968. 
"This makes two cheerleaders, 1 basketball 
player, 1 toddler and 2 proud — but 
pooped parents." 

ELEANOR McGregor ter horst 

has a second daughter, Catherine Naydeen, 
born June 5, 1968. Her husband Bob has 
a new job — Professor of Spanish at the 
University of Arizona in Tucson. 

On May 7, 1969, ANNE SIMPSON 
CLAY became the sole stockholder and 
President of Ellis Ashburn, Stationers, Inc., 
with two locations in Winston. She will 
continue to own and operate the Book and 
Supply Store at the N. C. School of the 
Arts. Her husband, Dick operates and 
manages the Wake Forest University Book 
Store. Sounds as if the Clays have a 
monopoly going in Winston! Good luck 
on Anne's new endeavor! 

ENDREA BRUNNER CARROLL was 
transferred to Conway, Arkansas, in 
August. 

MAUREEN O'CROWLEY RILEY and 
family of Jacksonville, Florida, were at 
Wrightsville Beach for a couple of weeks 
this summer. 

Mom and Dad took a tour of Europe 
this summer and saw HADWIG STOL- 
WITZER BROCKELMANN and husband 
Jost. He's with Shell Oil Co. in West 
Germany. However, they were vacationing 
in Innsbruck, Austria, where Hadwig's 
family has a summer home. They have two 
daughters. 

Dalton and I were guests of First Title 
Insurance Co. for a gala weekend in 
Raleigh September 20. Also attending were 
the Creighton Brinsons of Tarboro 
— nee FRANCES WILLIAMS. She's 
teaching kindergarten and is just as good- 
looking as ever. The Brinson's have 3 
children. She promised to make the next 
reunion! 

JEANNE MOYE GRAHAM and hus- 
band Otto are going to Spain next month 
with the N. C. Bar Association. Otto 
practices law in Morehead City, N. C. 
I noticed the Brinsons were on this list 
also — how I wish the Loftins were! 

Hope to hear from all you "young 
things" Christmas — it's your last chance 
before I start making up some news about 
you!

I will now continue with my June 
"Reunion Report." Letters, notes, and 
pictures arrived from many of you that 
couldn't be at Salem with us. I can assure 
you your notes were read in full, and we 
all enjoyed hearing from you. Don't you 
wish you could have heard our com- 
ments? Sorry about that. 

TODDY SMITH MacKENZIE was 
the first one I heard from. She and Bob 
were planning a trip to New Orleans that 
week and were unable to join us. Toddy 
finished her degree at East Carolina last 
year (1967) with a double major in his- 
tory and library science. She is now work- 
ing in the new elementary school in "Little 
Washington" as a librarian and just loves 
it. Her children are: Bob, 14; Mary Todd, 
13; and Jule, 8. 



Next was FRANCINE PITTS BACH- 
MAN, who for a while thought she would 
be with us, but at the last minute had a 
conflict. Her letter was "wild", needless 
to say! She would like to have a weekend 
reunion this winter with a skiing trip 
to Vermont, but others felt Virginia or 
North Carolina would be more convenient. 
If anyone wants to "get us organized" let 
me know. I'm ready to go, but think I'll 
wait for you skiers in the lodge, if that's 
O.K.! Francine's children are; Meyers, 11; 
Fred, 9; John 4; and at last a girl, Sharon, 
age 2. 

Another long letter was from KAY 
CUNNINGHAM BERRY. In fact, it took 
her over four years to write it. She started 
it to me for our reunion in 1965 and 
finally finished it and got in in the mail 
to BETTY LYNN in time for this reunion. 
Good work! The Berrys are fine and 
issue an invitation to anyone coming to 
California to "come see them." JANE 
LITTLE GIBSON had recently called her, 
hoping they would get to reunion. Please, 
Kay, start your letter now for our next 
reunion in 1972! 

ANNE EDWARDS said that June is 



her busiest time at school, and she just 
couldn't get away. She is Dean of Curricu- 
lum in a new junior high school in Clear- 
water, Fla., and just loves it. She said she 
may just get her Ph.D. one of these days. 
We sure would be proud of her; it would 
give some "intellectual class" to the class 
of '55. She issued everyone an invitation 
to come see her when in Florida. 

JO MONEY HERTEL told of living on 
an island surrounded by Lake Washington. 
Her husband is in private practice in 
Ob-Gyn, and they have two boys, ages 
seven and nine. Jo manages to paint and 
sculpt a lot, and her latest project is work- 
ing with scrap wood from newly built 
houses. 

Up until the last minute, CAROLYN 
KNEEBURG CHAPPELL and Jim had 
hoped to make it, but Jim was "bogged 
down" at the clinic. Jim is in the Depart- 
ment of Pediatrics at the University of 
Pittsburg School of Medicine and director 
of a comprehensive health center for chil- 
dren. Their children; Douglas, 7, enjoys 
school, and Kathy, 5, is busy in kinder- 
garten. The Chappells had a nice visit with 
NANCY FLORENCE VAN KIRK when 
they were in Washington one weekend. 

AUDREY LINDLEY NORWOOD was 

sorry she couldn't be there, but sent a won- 
derful picture of herself and her two 
darling daughters, Annette and Evelyn. 
The Harts had been with his family last 
Thanksgiving, and Audrey had "enjoyed 
a walk around Salem and was surprised to 
see the changes." 

Conflicts with a dance recital kept 
PEGGY McCANLESS EFIRD and Frank 
away. We were all saddened by the news 
of Peggy's father's death last March. The 
Efirds' oldest daughter Jan, 11, is in school 
in Washington, D. C. The other three, 
Frank, 5; Cindy, 10; and Margaret, 3; 
keep everyone going a "mile a minute" 
in New Bern. Peggy and Frank had just 
returned from Free Port, Grand Bahamas, 
where Frank bought some land to start 
building on. That might be an excellent 
place for a reunion. 

We were sorry BESSIE SMITH RAT- 
CLIFFE and Jeff couldn't be with us, but 
we enjoyed hearing from her. They have 
two children, Jeff, Jr., who is eight, and 
Janie, 6, who is starting school this fall. 

A letter was waiting at Salem for us 
from SUE JONES DAVIS, who at the 
last minute just couldn't make it. Roy has 
just recently been elected to the school 
board and "school board business" is taking 
more time than the coffee business." Sue's 
oldest child Alan will start school this 
year. Rhyne will be in kindergarten. They 
are moving into Concord this fall. They 
regret having to sell their home in the 
country, "but want the boys to attend the 
city schools." 

NORMA ANSELL HAHN has our 
youngest child (at this time). Harold 
Bryan Hahn was born March 19, 1969, 
and is their third boy. The other children 
are Scott, 7; Kevin, 6; and Linda, 3. Bill 
opened his office last July. He is a 
Psychiatrist. 

The oldest child of a classmate, is Nancy 
Krepps, who will be entering the Uni- 
versity of New Mexico in September. Her 
mother, JESSIE KREPPS MORRIS, is an 
assistant professor in the English Dept. at 

29 



New Mexico Highlands University in Las 
Vegas, New Mexico. 

EDITH HOWELL MILLER sent word 
to the Alumnae Office that she and Gary 
had adopted a two month old girl last 
December. Congratulations! 

MARLENE HEDRICK NEISLER has 
four children: Stella Lee, 14; Joe, III, 12; 
Melissa Marlene, 8; and Theresa Ann, 2. 
The Neislers live in Kings Mountain dur- 
ing the school year and at Lake Waccamaw 
in the summer months, where they enjoy 
fishing and water skiing. She says they do 
a lot of hunting and told of killing two 
eight point bucks in one day. 

I think we'll have to put Guppi on the 
"Black list" — all she sent in was a 
change of address — no news! The new 
address for ANN MIXON REEVES is: 
Mrs. Edward Reeves, 37 Templas Way, 
Summit, N. J. 07901. 

CHRIS CRUTCHFIELD KEYSER will 
go back to Jacksonville while Cmdr. Keyset 
Chaplain, U. S. Navy, will be in Vietnam. 
Cris and her four children. Chuck, Cris, 
Caroline, and Catherine will be at 3024 
St. Johns Ave., Jacksonville, Fla. 32205. 
A card I had sent to her returned to me 
last spring, so we are glad to know where 
she is! Best of everything to Cmdr. Keyser. 

We have had a wedding — IRMA 
GATEWOOD was married last July, 1968, 
to Benjamin Goldberg, a writer for West- 
ern Electric Co. They "honeymooned" in 
Nassau, and were planning a trip to Mexico 
this past summer. Irma is a third grade 
teacher in Davidson County, and also 
directs the church choir and plays the 
organ. We send our best wishes to the 
Goldbergs. 

In August JACKIE NIELSON BRASH- 
ER called while on a 15-minute stop here 
at the Chattanooga Airport. Needless to 
say, we talked a mile a minute. The 
Brashers are enjoying living in Switzer- 
land, a "truly wonderful experience for 
all." Jackie had flown to Florida in April 
for her "baby sister's" marriage. (Pam 
will shoot me for saying "baby sister", but 
I can remember the many hours we all 
spent baby sitting with her.) Then in 
August the Brashers visited Don's family 
in Kenmcky. She said they were so sorry 
to miss reunion, but will be there next 
tiine. This is the first reunion they have 
missed and Geneva, Switzerland, is rather 
far away. 

We are very sorry to hear that CARO- 
LYN WATLINGTON and ROY lost their 
baby boy a few hours after birth on 
September 15. Theit son Roy, III, is a 
4th grader. 

In November we will be meeting BON- 
NIE HALL STUART and Hall in Atlanta. 
They will be attending a medical meeting, 
and we are going "just for fun." I think 
BARBARA WHITE PEACOCK and 
Ward will join us. In Atlanta, too, are: 
30 



JANE LITTLE GIBSON, MARGUERITE 
BLANTON YORK, and BARBARA 
SMITH HUSS, so there will be "great 
news for the next Bulletin. Until then, 
please let me hear from you, and remem- 
ber the Alumnae Fund!

As you know, our class was to have a 
reunion this past June. Understandably, 
since our 10th reunion was 2 years ago, 
there were few class members at the 
reunion. Those of you who did come to 
Salem, please share your notes on reunion 
with us. Let's hope we can get a com- 
mittee together and plan something for our 
next one. 

There have been several changes of 
address and here they are: 

DOROTHY ERVIN has been promoted 
to manager-biometry unit in the scientific 
information department of A. H. Robins 
Company, Richmond-based pharmaceutical 
manufacturer. Her address is: 1710 Park 
Avenue, Richmond, Va. 23220. 

ANNE MILES HUSSMAN (Mrs. Tom) 
to 533 Stonebluff Road, El Paso, Texas 
79912. 

BREN BUNCH CHEATHAM (Mrs. 
James T. ) to 100 Middleton Place, Green- 
ville, N. C. 27834. 

ROSE TILLER McMICHAEL (Mrs. P. 
D., Jr.) to 617 South Main St., Reidsville, 
N. C. 27320. 

BILLIE CUMMINGS GOSLEN (Mis. 
Allen S.) to 2400 Merrimont Drive, Win- 
ston-Salem, N. C. 27106. 

Ours is a mobile class! Bren's sister, 
Diane Jordan, has moved to Winston- 
Salem in the past year. 

Billie has moved into a lovely new home 
here in Winston-Salem. She recently served 
on the nominating committee for the Salem 
College General Alumnae Association. 
Billie told me she was busy watching her 
children grow and that her "baby was 10 
this year." What a familiar feeling! 

JO COSTNER GUNNELS wrote from 
Charlotte about her two children, Terry, 
12; and Den, 11. Jo is a psychiatric social 
worker at the Mental Health Clinic. Her 
address is 3020 Northhampton Dr., Char- 
lotte, N. C. I saw Jo briefly at a meeting 
on Cfime and Delinquency held in Win- 
ston last fall and she looked great. 

Somehow our class must elect a president 
before reunion again. There seems to have 
been a slight misunderstanding when we 
met in 1967. We only elected a class 
correspondent as our lone officer. We 
need a president to coordinate plans for 
reunion. Most classes have sevetal officers 
and I believe at least two heads would 
be more competent than my one. It would 
be appropriate, I feel, if the president 
were chosen from those who attended 
Salem four years. Please help me solve 
the dilema of the missing president before 
next reunion. Volunteer someone out there!

Had it not been for the Salem Alumnae 
office and NOLLNER WATTS, there 
would be little news for this issue. Girls, 
you have been quite remiss in sending 
me news. Please remember us when you 
write your Christmas cards. Maybe that 
will be the way to have an interesting class 
report next time. 

MIRIAM QUARLES FICKEN and 
Chuck had a trip to Palm Beach, Florida, 
in the spring for a military seminar. 
Miriam wrote that she would be happy 
to settle down in a house again soon. Son 
David is now over a year old. 

DHU JENNETTE JOHNSTON and 
Don and their three older sons are cer- 
tainly enjoying George Nelson Johnston. 
Young George celebrates his first biithdav 
on December 12. 

MARY ARCHER BLOUNT SIMPSON 
reports a new address, Mrs. S. T. Simpson, 
Jr., 1904 Sedgefield Drive, Kinston 28501. 

Mary Archer, please send some more 
details about your happenings. 

A lengthy news card was sent to Salem 
from GAIL LANDERS. She said, "Return- 
ed to Atlanta, fall of 1965. For past 2'/2 
years have worked as pianist at 'John 
Escoe's' — one of most popular restaur- 
ants. Nearby is the 'Chalet' (owned by 
Katherine Anthony Whitaker's, '59, hus- 
band, Aggie. See and hear her sing there 
every few months. I hear from Beverly 
Brown Rogers, '57, often. I under- 
stand MARY ANNE HAGWOOD is now 
married. I spent two weeks in New York 
City last fall." 

Gail, we need your address. But at 
least, we know where to go to find you 
when we come to Atlanta. 

Beverly and Mary Anne, we want to 
hear from you girls. Where are you, Mary 
Anne? 

BETTY RENE WEBSTER FRYE wrote 
Salem, "I lack one course in finishing 
my master's in psychology at Furman. As 
we are moving to Morristown, Tennessee, 
around the end of June, I will have to 
take the last course as independent study. 
My three girls are now 7, 8, and 10." 

This testimony should be vety encouiag- 
ing to any of us who have entertained 
thoughts of going on after that master's. 
Our hearty congratulations, Betty Rene. 
Now, please send us your new address and 
tell us about your move. 

KAYE HANNAN PAUL and Jimmy 
and thtee sons still have not gotten back 
to normal surely since Anne Patterson 
Paul's arrival on April 5. Such excitement. 

AMORY MERRITT KING reported to 
Salem, "My family hardly recognizes me 
at this point. Have been spending countless 
hours directing the Summer Head Start 
Program here in Emmett. I found I was to 
be "Indian Chief" 3 days before the chil- 
dren were to arrive so you can imagine 
the confusion. It all will make my job 
in the Fall as Kindergarten teacher seem 



so much more leisurely by comparison. 
Otherwise, we are all hale and hearty. Are 
hoping for a three month sabatical to 
S. E. Africa next Summer." (We think 
Africa is right. When the envelope was 
opened the writing half tore off the page, 
so this is a guess. ) 

ELISE HARRIS WALKER sent her 
new address; Mrs. Lawrence C. Walker, 
732 Barnsdale Road, Winston-Salem, N. C. 

MESCAL COE CONRAD sent an ex- 
citing change of address. She wrote, "Will 
have a new Air Force assignment in July 
— the Philippines, living at Manila." 

I telephoned PEGGY INGRAM 
VOIGT'S cousin in an attempt to have 
the latest news from Lanny and Peggy, 
but she did not know any. Lanny was 
due home from Viet Nam in September. 
Peggy wrote to Salem, "In January, 1969, 
I met Lanny in Tokyo for a marvelous 
week." 

Peggy has been living in High Point 
during Lanny's Viet Nam tour. Where to 
now? 

BARBARA PACE DOSTER reported to 
Salem, "We have just taken a real giant 
step. Tom has opened Shakey's Pizza 
Parlor on Peter's Creek Parkway in Win- 
ston. We moved here December 30, 1968, 
and Tom opened January 2. These have 
been happy, exciting and challenging 
weeks. David and Katherine love having 
their own Pizza Parlor — would go every 
night if they could." 

MARY HADLEY FIKE GRIFFIN came 
to Roanoke this summer and gave us a 
most delightful treat. She and her wonder- 
ful sons came on their return home from 
Asheville. Since theirs was the most in- 
direct of routes we were even more thrill- 
ed. 

Ralph and Lloyd are delightful children, 
a real tribute to Mary Hadley and Big 
Lloyd. They are little fish and insisted 
on a trip to Jeanne's pool before getting 
home. 

Theirs was a one night stand, much 
too brief to sufficiently "Catch up." We 
rounded up baby sitters, sent the children 
out to play, sent Johnny to bed — then 
Rollie, Jeanne, Mary Hadley and I sat 
at our dining room table until literally 
there were sleeping children on the floor. 

Mary Hadley looked wonderful. She had 
a busy summer of sailing and travels, too. 
This has been a most difficult year for the 
Fike girls. They have sold their mother's 
home in Wilson. Louise and Llewelyn are 
both in Florida. 

I had a long letter from MARTHA 
ANNE KENNEDY BABCOCK. She had 
been on a spring tour of the Southern 
gardens and had a grand time. 

Smokie, Nollner, Johnny and I had our 
semi-annual reunion this fall in Pinehurst 
for a Banker's Meeting. Nollner won the 
tennis tournament. It rained the tennis 
out and bridge in. Johnny and I came 
in second. I have laughed that this was 
certainly the best tennis tournament score 
ever for me. (The tennis pro agreed.) 

Baby William Landon Watts is now 
sixteen months old. 

Smokie and Nollner have had the same, 
very sad experience as Mary Hadley. 



Smokie's mother died in the spring. 

This news gets more difficult to write 
as time passes for more and more of us 
are having tragic losses. Mr. Redlack died 
last summer. Our sympathy is certainly 
with Shirley, Bill, Mrs. Redlack and Kim- 
ball. It is also with Johnny and Marybelle. 
Mrs. Clark died the end of August. 

Nollner wrote to me following our trip 
to North Carolina to make certain her 
news would be correct. I will quote her; 

ANIS (IRA DALEY) and Barney and 
girls spent a few days with Shirley and 
Bill in August and took in Six Flags over 
Georgia as did Curt, Mrs. Wrike, Curt's 
and Jane's children. 

MARY JANE (GALLOWAY QUAT- 
TLEBAUM) and family have built and 
moved into a new home — full of Wil- 
liamsburg and Salem decor. 

SHIRLEY'S (REDLACK HILL) twins 
are in the first grade. Meg will be two 
in October. 

MARYBELLE (HORTON CLARK) 
and Johnny are in a new home with swim- 
ming pool. 

LINDA (CHAPPELL HAYES) is 
teaching in a private school, Jackson Acad- 
emy, for pre-school age children." 

Linda's four children range in ages 
from ten to four. She must be the same 
energetic girl. 

Diggs and CURT (WRIKE GRAM- 
LEY) have moved to Eugene, Ore. — ad- 
dress; 3715 Harlow St., 97401. Diggs is 
teaching at a community college there. The 
Gramleys spent the summer at their farm 
out from Lynchburg. They were very busy 
with a do-it-yourself refurbishing job. 
Nollner got to visit with them. She said 
the Gramleys' summer was frantic. Be- 
tween work they travelled to Atlanta, to 
Graham, back to Graham when Jane had 
a baby girl and moved. Moving day found 
part of the family with the flu. We hope 
getting settled was easy. Curt. 

MARTHA JARVIS BUCK'S new baby 
makes two boys and two girls. Margaret 
Ann arrived on May 6th at 8 pounds, ten 
ounces. Jarvie wrote to Rollie, "Our chubby 
little lady finally arrived three weeks late. 
She is just the good news the family need- 
ed as we lost my father in February. Can't 
believe it's a year since the reunion." 

Jarvie, we extend to you our sympathy 
at the same time we rejoice over the arrival 
of Margaret Ann. 

Graham Lee Adams was born on June 
7th, also a nine pounder. Rollie is almost 
as bad as a grandmother playing with the 
baby. They are spoiling him terribly, but 
he is adoiable. 

Christel is six and in the first grade. 
Will, at five, is in kindergarten. 

JEANNE HUMPHREY HEDGEPETH 
is planning a trip to Europe in March. 
She will go with brother, Don, and his 
wife to ski and sightsee. 

Jeanne and Louten had a cruise to 
Jamaica in the spring and a trip to Puerto 
Rico this summer. She surely wins the 
prize as the most travelled member of 
1958 for this year. 



Johnny and I visited with a cousin of 
MARY DUNN McCOTTER ANDREWS 
at the beach this summer. They reported 
that Mary Dunn is more beautiful than 
ever, works hard, and is happy. 

Guess who arrived on Martha and Jay 
Frank's tenth wedding anniversary? James 
Frederick Frank — called Jamie — is the 
addition. He was 5 weeks old when they 
got him, is good as gold, adorable and 
may be a red head. Jamie is the Lackeys' 
and Mr. Frank's first grandchild. Mrs. 
Lackey is running Martha a race trying 
to keep the baby. 

Martha and Jay and Johnny and I are 
planning a quick reunion at the Wake 
Forest-Duke game. They have been asked 
to come armed with snapshots since we 
will be unable to see Jamie for a while. 

I am very anxious for our class mem- 
bers to personally supply me their news. 
Truly, almost all of this issue is second 
hand news. It frightens me each time to 
have to round up something for the 
Bulletin, Please, temember — Christmas 
cards for Anne.

I would like to thank all of you for the 
warm response to my plea for news. It 
has been delightful to go to the mail box

or the mailman's, and I hope you will 
write anyway. We are trying to get a 
list of the names and birthdates of all our 
children and an up-to-date list of addresses. 
Please get these to me if you have not 
already. I was especially happy to get a

that she and Gordy are busy with rallies, 
coffees, dinners, etc., with the election

ANNE SUMMER£LL DA V ANT and 
MARGARET MacQUEEN GRAYSON

the beach in August. Margaret and her 
children spent some time with her parents 
and also visited her brother who is in-

This summer he studied and passed the 
N. C. Bar. 

ANN LEE BAREFIELD sends a new

and ballet. 

JANET GARRISON PASS and her fam- 
ily have just returned home after two 
years in Germany. Their address is 5105

had a small reunion in Charlotte in July 
with all of their children. Jane is teaching 
part-time at Durham Academy this fall. 

At last some news from "CRUTCH" 
(CAROL CRUTCHFIELD FEWELL)! 
She writes, "Our family includes Jennifer, 
John, Jr., Payne, Christopher, and 
Claudyne — PLUS one big dog, two 
kittens, a pet pig, and two gerkels — 
and we do not live on a farm! Wish we 
did! I stay busy with Jr. League puppet 
shows. Girl Scouts, and thousands of 
car pools!!!" 

I am teaching part-time at Lenoir Rhyne 
again this year and continue to find it 
stimulating — and eye opening — I have 
an eight o'clock class! Right now I am 
trying to prepare my first test on the 
Medieval Period and am trying to locate 
an old test to see what Miss Byrd asked us 
about Chaucer. 

You should receive an address list soon, 
and I will look forward to Christmas cards 
with lots of news.

There is quite a lot of news this time, 

girls. Most of you sent a note with your 

contribution to the fund drive, so here 
goes: 

Last April I received a letter from 
WANDA HEPLER GRUBBS MUSSEL- 
MAN, originally of the class of '59. She 
was delayed in graduating due to the birth 
of her daughter, Winnifred Lee, soon to 
be eleven years old, and graduated with 
our class. She is now Mrs. Eugene E. 
Musselman of 1705 Georgetown Drive, 
Champaign, 111. 61820. Her husband is 
practicing veterinary medicine and doing 
graduate work at the University of Illinois. 
She hopes to do graduate work in piano 
there this fall. Wanda also hopes she'll 
be able to get together with MARGARET 
FLETCHER KLEBER, who is in Rockford, 
Illinois. 

We Salzwedels drove through both 
Champaign and Rockford on our way to 
North Dakota this summer. That's nice 
country. 

ROSEMARY LANEY CROW wrote for 
assistance in planning music for a Christ- 
mas Lovefeast service the Junior League 
of Asheville will have this year. Rosemary 
is now choir director at Trinity Episcopal 
Church in Asheville, and enjoys it so 
much. 

HENRIETTA JENNINGS BROWN 
wrote in June: "Our little girl Karen, 2!/2, 



is growing up so fast now. Will be adopt- 
ing another one, a little boy, quite soon. 
Hope to make it for our reunion next 
year." 

GWEN DICKERSON was remarried 
last November and is now Mrs. Carmen 
Infantino of 1820 Cooper Road, Virginia 
Beach, Va. 23454. She earned the Master's 
degree in Education from the College of 
William and Mary in June. 

From ANN WALSTON JOYNER of 
Farmville, N. C: "I am a retired fourth 
grade school teacher now and a full time 
wife and mother. My husband has a cloth- 
ing store here and we have two little 
girls — Jenny, 3, and Mary Leslie, 1. I 
am enjoying my new form of teaching 
immensely." 

MIGNON ROSS WILSON writes: 
"Have enjoyed our two years in New 
Hampshire. The snow has been great and 
we are all avid skiing fans. Sloan will com- 
plete his tour of duty with the Navy in 
June, and we will move to Boston, where 
he will be doing a retinal fellowship at 
the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. 
In January, 1970, we will move to Little 
Rock." ("This last sentence was partially 
totn off when the envelope was opened. 
I hope I interpreted it correctly.) 

NOEL HOLLINGSWORTH McINTYRE 
says: "Steve is on his second tour of duty 
in Vietnam. The boys, and Meg (botn in 
July, '68), and I are living in High Point 
for the year." 

DRUSILLA JONES GADSBY is living 
with her mother at the following address:

Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32205. 

JO ANNE HUDSON KINNAMON'S 
new address in Fredericksburg, Va., is 1103 
Princess Ann St. (Zip 22401). 

ANN JOYNER RANDOLPH has some 
delicious news: "Charles and I have two 
children — Elizabeth Atrington, 616, and 
William Powell, I'/j. I'm going to open 
a steak house next month, the Carolina 
Rib Eye, and want any Salemites coming 
to Kinston to visit me and try out my 
restaurant. Let's all go to the tenth re- 
union!" That's the Carolina Rib Eye in 
Kinston, gitls. 

SANDRA SHAVER PRATHER was in 
Atlanta the weekend before Christmas for 
her brother's wedding. She managed a 
twenty-minute visit with CAROLINE 
EASLEY ALDAY there, and commented 
on Caroline's two lovely children. 

And from CAROLINE EASLEY AL- 
DAY: "We enjoyed a nice week in New 
York in January (before the snow). Buddy 
was attending meetings all week at the 
American Academy of Orthopedic Sur- 
geons, but I enjoyed sightseeing, going to 
plays, and shopping. Buddy will finish his 
residency in July, 1971. We don't know 
where we will live yet." 

We are sorry to learn that CAROL 
DOXEY STARNES' father died January 
11, '69. Carol teaches piano and cares for 
Will, 4'/2, and Caroline, 116. She says, 
"Most alumnae meetings are held in the 
A & P at Chapel Hill!" Carol's address is: 
Mrs. William W. Starnes, Box 365, Pitts- 
boro, N. C 27312. 

EVA JO BUTLER DANIEL writes: 
"Lou and I have three boys. They keep 



me busy! We have built a new home and 
have been in it almost two years. We 
enjoy it and enjoy all the openness. It is in 
a private development, Country Club of 
North Carolina. It is a grand place to 
raise boys." 

For those of you who want Robert 
Knott's address (husband of the late 
SUSAN DEARE KNOTT), it is: 522 
Edgewood Rd., Asheboro, N. C. 

Paul and EVELYN VINCENT RILEY 
had an exciting trip to South Africa (and 
points along the way) in February. She 
writes, "We now plan a move to Houston, 
Texas, by early summer, as Paul has taken 
a position as Director of Engineering at 
Trans-Texas Airlines (soon to become 
Texas International ) . We regret leaving 
sunny Phoenix, but the added responsi- 
bility was irresistible." (And the last 
sentence was torn off when the envelope 
was opened, Evelyn). That new address 
in Houston is: Mrs. Paul A. Riley, 17519 
Butt Creek, Houston, Texas 77016. 

JANE BELLAMY VENTERS writes, 
"Vic and I are building a house in Wil- 
mington, a copy of ours in Charlotte. Still 
busy with three little boys." 

We are sorry to learn that ELIZABETH 
McLEAN BRICE'S mother, Mrs. Charles 
B. McLean, passed away on April 9, of 
this year after a three month illness. Eliza- 
beth writes: "Her house (our family home- 
place built in 1855 — I was the fourth 
generation to live in the house) will be 
torn down in June. Sonny and I plan to 
salvage all the floors (beautiful random 
width boards of heart pine), the mantles, 
the gables on the house, etc., and are 
going to build it back on a beautiful lot. 
"I am teaching school this year at our 
senior high school on a part-time basis — 
teaching Latin II, of all things! I just have 
two morning classes (teach from 10:00 
to 12:00) so it is really delightful. I still 
have plenty of time for my two boys, 
Bryan ((yVi) and McLean (Vh) . They are 
enough to keep me busy — all boy, both 
of them. "I had a phone conversation 
with CAROLYN RAY BENNETT last 
week. She said LOU SCALES FREEMAN 
has a third baby, a boy. Also talked to 
HELEN LONDON HILL — she is still 
in Columbia, S. C. We have a grand 
Salem Alumnae group in Wilson — very 
active. We put on a bazaar every Christ- 
mas and have really made money each 
time. It's becoming an 'institution' in 
Wilson. Betty Jon Satchwell Smith and 
Katie Teague Covington of '59, Matilda 
Woodard Gold of '61, Susan Wainwright 
Bridgers of '62 are all here and lots more." 
Thanks so much for the bundle of news, 
Elizabeth. 

NELL WIGGINS DAVIS is living 
in a suburb of Montreal with husband 
Bob and children, Robbie and Cindy. Bob 
is Vice President of Planned Investment 
Corporation. Nell is crazy about Canada. 
Her address is: Mrs. Bob-Ray Davis, 188 
Sherwood Road, Beaconsfield P.Q., Canada. 

I had a lovely visit with GERRIE Mc- 
ILROY in August when she came over for 
lunch and spent the afternoon. Gerrie 
lives in New York City, sings opera, and 
is soloist in a church in New Jersey. She 
had a nice write up in the February, 1969, 
Opera News, and has been chosen one 
of the Outstanding Women of America 
in 1969. We are very proud of Gerrie.

Ladies, please note the above address. 
It has been at the top of the past several 
issues of the Bulletin, and there are many 
of you who have never sent news. You 
wonder why your name and news never 
appear — that's why! Get out your pads 
and pens and jot down a word or two 
about your comings and goings (a postal 
will do) so everyone can keep up with 
you. End of sermon!! 

Most current in the news for the 
Browns is the birth of our second daugh- 
ter Celia Farrar, born August 25. In her 
first month of life she grew V/i inches 
and 2'/2 pounds, so there are strong indi- 
cations that another tall Brown is in the 
making. Elizabeth, who was three in 
September, has shown mixed feelings about 
the new attraction around the house, but, 
nonetheless, has demonstrated affection — 
in the form of her teddy bear hug and a 
high-pitched squeak — toward Celia. 
Needless to say, we are delighted over two 
girls! 

Another girl came around during the 
summer months. Welcome to Miss Kim- 
berly Elizabeth Owen, daughter of EMILY 
and Charles Owen. Kim was born July 
17, and joins Kristin, 4 years, and Chuck, 
2'/2 years, with Mom and Dad, at 1511 



Delia Drive, Decatur, Georgia 30033. Con- 
gratulations, folks. One young gentleman 
has come into the world. William Ronald 
Pleasant, Jr., son of Ronnie and SUSAN 
was born March 4. Congratulations to you. 
Tell us more of your news, Susan. No 
other contributions to the population ex- 
plosion have come to my attention, so I 
take it that our next Bulletin will carry 
more news! 

CYNTHIA H. KRATT, you and Ted 
left Durham and returned to Charlotte, 
and didn't send me your address. Lemme 
have it, thanks. All you other gals who 
have moved can do likewise! 

A few bits of news floated my way 
from here and there. FRAN CARTIER 
CREASY and Al have lived in New Jersey 
a little over two years. Said Fran, "We 
like it very much but are still Southerners 
at heart. We have two red-headed future 
Salemites. Melinda is three, and Elaine 
is five years and now in kindergarten. I 
would love to see some of my Salem 
friends if they are ever in the New York 
City area. (You forgot your address, 
Fran! ) 

SALLY TYSON wrote, "I am working 
at American Heritage Publishing Com-

there. Little Charles, now three, keeps 
Sara quite busy, I understand. 

CHURCHILL JENKINS HEDGEPATH 
has her fingers in the busiest pie I know 
of — the age group from 3 to 5 years! 
She is teaching kindergarten, while Jenks 
is in the 3 year old nursery school, and 
has a 5 year old Sunday School Class to 
teach. Just think, the glorious part of those 
"wonder years" is all yours, Churchill!! 
Wrote Churchill, "We are still in the nut 
and bolt business!" 

LYNN LIGON FISHER and Earl have 
moved to Wilson, N. C. (1718 Hillcrest 
Dr. 27893), where Earl is practicing 
pediatrics. Welcome back to North Caro- 
lina, Lynn!! 

Salem has another daughter busy for the 
institution. ANNE LANDAUER SPROCK 
wrote, "As president of the Greensboro 
Salem Alumnae, I feel I've kept up a little 
better with Salemites and their doings." 
Their summer plans included a trip to 
Litchfield, where most of their time was 
spent playing tennis, golf and taking Alli- 
son (5'/2) and Martin (4) to the pool 
each day. Sounds great, doesn't it? 

ELAINE FALLS made her annual fall 
trip to Raleigh in late August, and it 
was a delight to see her at a get together 
at SALLY and Bill Creech's home. Elaine 
continues to love Atlanta and paints a 
gay picture of activities down there. 

MATILDA GOLD took a gang of gals 
to Europe this summer, but at this writing 
I haven't gotten a report on the trip. 
Maybe by next issue we can have some 
news from her. Speaking of Europe, Har- 
riet and Jim Hill took a trip abroad this 
summer with special emphasis on England. 
As I understand, this was a theatre tour, 
so one has only to imagine the excitement 
the Hills encountered! 

Here are a few address changes you 
might wish to jot down in your book 
somewhere : 

ANNE FRETWELL PEELER (Mrs. 
Gerald), 1177 Lakeshore Drive, Gaines- 
ville, Georgia 30501.

I had a delightfully long letter from 
JANE PENDLETON WOOTTON. She 
and Percy spent 3 weeks in England, Scot- 
land and Ireland this summer. Visiting 
friends in London and Dublin made the 
trip perfect for them. Their daughter, 
Jane Meredith, will be two on Halloween, 
and she continues to be her daddy's "eye- 
balls", wrote Jane.

"Thank you all so very much for your 
generous contributions to the Alumnae

same enthusiasm and generosity you did 
me. My special thanks to the 12 girls who 
served as Agents. Let's make our class show

Much news this fall — some very old 
but a great deal is recent. Many thanks to 
all of you who took time to write after 
having talked with classmates about 
financial matters. We are still short on 
many addresses so keep in touch as you 
hear from more people. 

Our sympathy to JANE DULL whose 
father, Joseph Henry Dull, died over a 
year ago. Jane is living at home in Win- 
ston.

ANNE HUTAFF O'MALLEY, Kelly 
and daughter Katherine are in Leaven- 
worth, Kansas (309 S. 10th Street). Kelly 
just completed a tour of duty in 'Vietnam

Another family celebrating are the Mor- 
tons: JACKIE (BAKER), Duncan, III, 
and Peck were living in Charlotte until 
Duncan's return from Vietnam in August. 
They are now in Georgia (no address). I 
ran into Jackie last March at the ACC 
Tournament and it was great to talk and 
miss one of the hundred hours of un- 
interrupted basketball! 

LUCINDA SMITH SEALE and husband 
William are in Columbia, S. C. 29204 
(1718 Madison, Apt. 17). William is a 
wrirer and Lucinda was working as a choir 
director prior to their recent move from 
Texas. 

Congratulations to the Vickers — JANE 
RAYNOR and Larry, on the long awaited 
birth of Haydn Raynor, September, 1969. 
Frank and I stayed with them last March 
returning from Florida and three year old 
Lance is really a mover. Busy now Jane? 

Also best wishes to ROBIN RHODES 
who became Mrs. Simms C. Browning on 
October 11. Simms is an Investment

Florida (805 E. Sylvan Drive) where he 
is a Divisional Operations Manager for 
Plant City Steel Company. They have three

No address also for BETTY GAIL 
MORISEY KING whose husband Reamer

I hope to see Judy when I go apartment 
hunting in the spring. We're finally leav- 
ing Manhatten in June, 1970. Frank is 
going to be the Chief Resident in Medicine 
at the University Hospital in Charlottes- 
ville and we are looking forward to a year 
in "rural America" before going into the 
Army in 1971. I've been very busy with 
a "terrible two" and find little time to 
keep up with the reading for a Modern 



Chinese History course at Hunter College. 
New York has become much more en- 
joyable since Frank, III, has learned to eat 
hot dogs in Central Park and ride subways! 

Keep in touch with a Christmas card and 
send me any of these missing addresses.

Many thanks to those who responded 
since the August Bulletin — you are sure- 
ly going to make my job easier! I am 
planning to send out a new address list 
in time to aid you in sending Christmas 
cards, so address changes would be es- 
pecially welcome. Hope we gave those of 
you who couldn't make the Reunion an 
idea of what went on — and weren't we 
a slim and beautiful bunch in our picture! 

Stork news continues to be the big thing 
m the Class of '64. ZENA STRUB GIL- 
LEY and D. C. have a baby boy, Duncan 
Cabell, born September 9- D. C. and 
Zena are no longer in Maryland, as I 
reported in the last class notes, but had 
a surprise move during the summer — to 
Hawaii! Uncle Sam will keep them there 
for 3 years — tough luck. Their address: 
3644-B Porter Loop, Schofield Barracks, 
Hawaii, APO San Francisco 96557. 

It's a boy also for G. G. MONK 

WELLS and Warner — John Warner 

Wells, II, was born July 24. G. G. and 
Warner are in Norfolk, Va. 

A third male arrival is Sean Eliot Sim- 
mers, son of ALEX MOUNT SIMMERS 
and Richard, who was born on June 30. 
Address: 866 Andover Road, Lansdale, Pa. 
19446. 

Would you believe another boy baby — 
come on, girls, the class of '91 will be 
nonexistent if we don't produce a few 
girls! A nice note from MARY TATE 
GRAHAM BLAKE told of the arrival of 
Graham Hunter Blake on July 16 — but 
I'm not sure whether it was '68 or '69, 
so it may be an "old" baby by now. 
She says; "Have just resigned job at 
Asheboro High School teaching Humani- 
ties and Chorus so I could be at home 
with the baby. Begin work on Master's of 
Music Education at UNC-G this fall. We 
still reside at Ramseur, in a 100-year-old 
farm house we have remodeled. Tom owns 
Blake Home Builders in Liberty and I'm 
Director of Music at First Presbyterian 
Church in Asheboro." 

MADGE KEMPTON FLEECE and 
Dave have moved from Durham, N. C, 
to Richmond — 10456 Medina Road, 
Richmond, Va. 23235. Their second son, 
Stephen, was born in July. 

WOOKIE WORKMAN PAYNE and 
Tom are expecting their first child in 
March — and in view of the above, I 
don't think they even have to have a 
girl's name picked out — it's bound to 
be a boy. 

In addition to baby news, our class 
continues to distinguish itself in other 
fields. ALICE REID DIGILIO will teach 
European Literature at George Washing- 



ton University this fall. A card to Miss 
Byrd from Alice said she had hoped to 
make it to the reunion but expected com- 
pany and a crucial point in their house 
remodeling project made it impossible. We 
missed you, Reid! 

I made one goof in reporting the news 
from LYNN HALL KITCHIN and Mills 
— they still have one more year in the 
Army. They have left California and 
Vietnam, respectively, and are now at Fort 
Belvoir, Va., until June of '70, when they 
will be back in Scotland Neck. 

WANDA CEVARICH PETRASY and 
Gene have moved to Norfolk, Va., where 
Gene is a dentist. Their address: 1705 
Harmon Street, Apt. 103, Norfolk, Va. 
23518. 

A note from LYN BALL WHITE re- 
ports they are in New York City, where 
husband Tom is with Merrill, Lynch. 
They have two children: Hillary, age two, 
and Finley, age 8 months. 

PAM TRUETTE THOMPSON and 
Tommy just don't seem to stay put. A 
card from Pam says; "We have left Cali- 
fornia and are now back in the South. 
Our new, and I hope permanent, address 
is 2419 Kings Point Drive, N.E., At- 
lanta, Ga." 

Also from Atlanta was a welcome letter 
from ELIZABETH SYKES, with news of 
her up-coming wedding on November 29 
to Colin Bessonette, who is picture editor 
of the Atlanta Journal. IRENE ROSE 
OWEN will be a bridesmaid. Colin and 
Elizabeth met in Atlanta, but he was at 
Wake Forest part of the time we were 
at Salem, and Elizabeth says, "We've had 
fun wondering how often our paths crossed 
without our knowing." 

Another mighty welcomed letter was 
from IRENE ROSE OWEN (Mrs. Dun- 
can Owen, 8910 Brieryle Road, Richmond, 
Va. 23229). Irene says she spent most of 
the summer "soaking in the baby's plas- 
tic pool in the backyard," but with a few 
side trips. Their baby boy, Duncan, is 
almost two now, so life is not dull at 
8910 Brieryle Road! 

JOSEPHINE VANCE AVERY an-

phine Vance Avery, on September 28. 
Her address is: Mrs. William L. Avery, 
706 Meade Drive, Greensboro, N. C. 
27410. Congratulations to you and Bill! 

JO HIERGESELL McCREARY has a

Vienna, Va. 22180. 

SARAH KIRK ALBRIGHT'S new ad-

CLAUDIA CRAWFORD FLEMING 
(Mrs. Gary Graman) is now in Winston-

JANE HEDGEPATH ADCOCK (Mrs.

Gene will be working in the New Born 
Nurseries at Fitz-Simons Army Hospital. 
The address in Denver is: 12365 East 
54th Drive (80239). 

A note from ANNE INGRAM KEN- 
NEDY (Mrs. Wm. J., 3506 Cotswold 
Terrace, Greensboro, N. C. 27410) an- 
nounced the arrival of William Joseph 

35 



Kennedy, IV (Jay) on September 3. She 
and Bill moved into a new home in 
August. 

I know there must be much more going 
on with all of you, so please put me on

that I'm anxious to get address changes 
so I can send out a list for your use at 
Christmas time!

appointed. Nevertheless, I have managed 
to keep my ears tuned to the hot line and 
have received a few letters of encourage- 
ment. The longest letter was from: 

SUSAN LEIGH MADDOX, 1916 N. 
Blanco Drive, Hobbs, New Mexico 88240. 
Ann Wagner was born October 24, 1968, 
and from her picture she will grow up 
to be a beauty queen like Mom. Susan 
wrote that Toby is "thoroughly engrossed 
with 'the law' as he is the Assistant Dis- 
trict Attorney, has his own private law 
practice and teaches business law two 
nights at a junior college. No siestas for 
us." 

Exactly where ROBBIN CAUSEY 
CLARK is I am not sure, but at the June 
report, Dallas was to leave for 'Vietnam in 
late August. Robbin loved living in New- 
port where Dallas went to Naval Justice 
School. She wrote, '"We have been on the 
golf course at the Newport Country Club 
and you should see the names on the ladies 
lockers — 'We're really hob-knobbing it." 

Congratulations to our new parents:

citingly relates that the boys use only 

36

lem, N. C. 

CACKY reports that "John and I have

KIN'S new husband, but he must be 
terrific. They were married in Tampa on

BETH PREVOST is now at Tulane 
Medical School working toward her doc- 
torate in nutrition. Beth's address is: 1300 
Canal St., Hawthorne Hall, Apt. 10-12, 
New Orleans, La. 70112. 

ELLEN HEFLIN RAMSEY is still liv- 
ing in Clinton, S. C, where George is 
a professor at Presbyterian College. 

MARY LEE HUTCHINS and family 
had a very interesting summer on a three 
week camping tour of the Pacific North- 
west and Canada. Mary Lee teaches World 
History at Western High School. She and 
Erie, who is a senior engineer with 
Western Electric, have two children, Mi- 
chelle (16), and Joseph (15). 

While attending graduate school at 



UNC-G this summer, BETH SULLIVAN 
MATTHEWS lost 10 pounds— Imagine. 
She writes, "Neil has gotten out of the 
banking business and is a stockbroker with 
First Securities Corporation in Lumberton. 
We built a beach house at Fort Carswell 
a year ago and spend most weekends there. 
I am teaching again this year, three classes 
of seventh grade language arts." Beth's 
address is IC Normandy Aprs., Lumber- 
ton. Beth closed her letter with "Talk up 
the reunion, let's have a big crowd." Sad- 
dest news of all is that there will be no 
reunion until 1971. It's depressing be- 
cause we in Winston had already starting 
making the big plans — cocktails and 
dinner on Saturday; Sunday Brunch; ac- 
tivities galore for the husbands (golf, ten- 
nis, fishing, pool, swimming and even 
poker); babysitters for the children. It's 
off for 1970, but let's plan to spend a 
big weekend in Winston the following 
year and I promise it will be extra spe- 
cial fun. 

MARY CANNON and I had our own 
private reunion after three years and was 
it ever fun — talking about good ole 
times. She now lives in Winston at 3062 
Bonhurst Drive. Last winter Mary went 
on an African Safari for three weeks. 
Amazingly enough, she saw only one 
snake and her quarters were plusher than 
many hotels. Mary's job with Wachovia 
Services, Inc., takes her to many cities in 
the South and recently she encountered 
KAY KELL who is now Mrs. Thomas A. 
McGowan. They live in Charlottesville, 
Va., where Tom is in UVA Graduate 
School. Certainly would like to hear from 
them. 

Mary also saw BABS BODINE REID- 
LER (Mrs. Terrence) who is in Rich- 
mond, Va., where Terry is at T. C. Wil- 
liams Law School. Babs is teaching 5th 
grade. They live on West Ave. 

ALLISON POLLARD BERTRAND and 
Bert have moved from Chicago to New 
York where at last report they did not 
have a place to live because Allison wanted 
to stay in the city while Bert preferred 
the suburbs. 

John and I did a bit of traveling this 
summer — Las Vegas, California, and 
Mexico, then Jay and I went to Sea 
Island, Ga. for three weeks. We consider 
ourselves quite the gourmets these days; 
John is even writing a cookbook. The 
Friendly Guide to Food and Drink. It's 
been a very good year for the Class of 
1965. Let's all write what we are doing 
and send a contribution to Salem.

DIANE MORTON FENTRESS has 
done it again! She had a beautiful wed- 
ding March 1 when she was married to 
Lee Fentress, and has been enjoying the 
tennis circuit ever since! To top it all off, 
she is expecting what Lee swears will be 
a boy next March. Diane is determined to 
get a place in the news, and she has done 
a great job so far! 

FLASH!! I have really been left this 
time! Our "sweet little JEANNIE 



BARNES" was married on August 30 in 
Charlottesville (U. of Va. Chapel) to Jon 
Spargur of South Dakota. Jon is a man- 
agement consultant with Arthur Young & 
Co., and has been assigned to Washington. 
We were scared for awhile that Jeannie 
would be taken away to New York, but 
after a glorious honeymoon in Jamaica, 
they have settled at 201 I Street, S.W., 
Apt. 61, Washington, D. C. 20024. 
"Barnes" is now playing the dual role of 
NASA Queen and housewife. 

Quite a Salem crowd was on hand for 
Jeannie and Jon's wedding, and we had 
a great reunion! SARAH and Louis Bis- 
sette were there with news of Little 
Louie and their latest addition — "Hoops," 
a German Shepherd puppy. They are still 
in Charlottesville where Louis is adding 
to his collection of degrees — this one 
will be a graduate degree in business. I 
think their plans are to retire after this 
year! 

CAROL COLBERT TUCKER and Jim- 
my drove up from Jacksonville for the 
wedding and brought along pictures of 
their adorable little girl, Kim, and their 
brand new home in Jacksonville. They are 
doing great, and I think Carol and mar- 
ried life must agree with Jimmy ... he 
is a real hunk!! Their new address in 
Jacksonville is 8524 Brierwood Road, 
Jacksonville, Florida 32217. 

I have seen a lot of SUSIE MATERNE 
BENSON and Taylor lately. I spent a 
three day vacation with them in Virginia 
Beach this summer, which was great! Their 
little Frances is something else . . . she 
has a temperament just like her mother's 
and giggles all of the time. Susie and 
Taylor were in Charlottesville for Jeannie's 
wedding, and a couple of weeks later I 
spent a weekend with them in Richmond 
when I drove down with our class Santa 
Claus, Rob Glenn! We had such fun 
hashing over old times and playing with 
Frances, who is now larger than Susie — 
wearing chubbetts and loving it! 

On the way home from Virginia Beach 
I dropped by Norfolk and spent a couple 
of days with CATHIE and Johnny Hite 
and their new addition, Lindsay. They are 
doing great and cute Lindsay is so big 
and bubbly! I wish you could see little 
Cathie trying to keep up with her — it's 
a riot — she is really a cute "mother." 
They hope to be out of the Navy some- 
time next year!! 

Pre-wedding plans for Jeannie and Jon 
included a cocktail party which Diane and 
I hostessed, and where JAN and Alex 
Surratt were unexpectedly found on hand. 
Alex's flourishing import business brought 
him to Washington, where he and Jan 
spent the weekend with Diane and Lee. 
They both looked tremendous, despite 
Alex's recent bout with hepatitis! Jan is 
teaching in Wilson, where their address 
is 301-A Park Avenue, Wilson, N. C. 
Jan sees SCOTT McIVER often and 
writes that she is a "fabulous artist" and 
doing a booming business painting chil- 
dren's portraits. Jan also reports that 
FRANCES MOCK MOTLEY had a baby 
boy named Philip. Let us know all about 
him, Frances! 

Another exciting bit of news is the 
recent marriage of ELINOR TR£XLER, 
who became Mrs. Paul Roy on April 19- 
Elinor and Paul "mooned" in Haiti and 
liked it so well that they are returning in 

37 



January with several other couples. Elinor 
spent a couple of years before her mar- 
riage in Winston-Salem where she worked 
for the Community Services Unit of the 
Winston-Salem Police Dept. and lived 
with JEANNE ANN WERNER. Jeanne 
Ann was among Elinor's attendants and is 
living at the present time in Winston. 
Let us hear from you, Jeanne Ann! 

Also in the wedding was BETTY BEN- 
TON, who has been vacationing in Eu- 
rope and I assume by this time has re- 
turned to Atlanta where she is working 
with the Red Cross. Her new address is 
3030 Old Decatur Road, Apt. C-201. 

Elinor has quite a Salem contingency at 
the wedding, and it sounds as though they 
had a wonderful time! ANN DOZIER 
MARINO and her husband, John, were 
in the wedding, and I understand returned 
to Illinois afterwards to await the birth 
of their baby, due in March. How about 
some details, Ann?.'? 

Among the Salemite guests at Elinor's 
wedding were ANN WILSON and 
SUSAN YOUNG who are both working 
for IBM in Atlanta. Ann had a great 
summer which included the Young Life 
trip to Colorado with the "Hippies." Ann 
reports the trip was "fantastic." 

BETTY McMillan Gregory and 

her husband, Jim, who were married last 
December, were on the scene for Elinor's 
betrothal. They are now living at 503 
Weaver Drive in Lexington, N. C An- 
other newlywed and guest was JUDY 
CUBBERLY LeGRAND with her new 
husband, Gordon, who is a doctor at the 
University of North Carolina. They were 
married on February 22 and are living at 
1204 North Greensboro Street in Car- 
boro. Judy is working at Duke Hospital, 
while Gordon finishes up his final year 
of Pathology. 

I received a newsy letter from LINDA 
TUNSTALL DILLON telling ail about 
Clark, their new little Anna, and of course, 
their animals. Tinker, Ming and Lolly. 
Linda and Clark are leaving Texas October 
6 for a month's vacation. They will be 
going to North Carolina and Maryland 
visiting relatives. Also included on their 
itinerary is a visit to Richmond to visit 
Susie and Taylor and on to Charlottesville 
for a stay with Sarah and Louis. 

MARY DAMERON HOLDERNESS 
and her hubby, Haywood, have moved to 
1602 East Greenbrier Drive, Mobile, Ala- 
bama, 36605. Haywood is the Minister of 
Grace Presbyterian Church. They survived 
Camille, and would you believe that 
Mary is at last out of her cast? She has 
graduated to crutches, and I know is 
elated over her progress!!! 

Chapel Hill is where we will find JUDY 
GILLIAM BULLA and her husband, Rich- 
ard, beaming over their brand new house. 
(808 Tinkerbell Road, Chapel Hill, 
27514). Judy reports that she is hopefully 
in her last year of working for the Dept. 
of Social Services, and Richard is still 
with NCNB. 

The last we heard from MARTHA 
WILLEY JOHNSON was that she was 
teaching science classes at Chapel Hill 
Jr. High, after completing her Master's 
degree in parasitology. Where are you and 
Mark now, Martha?? 

Columbia, South Catolina has some 
38 



special attraction for many of our class- 
mates and their husbands! HAPPY PRICE 
HOLMES and her "catch," Ross, are liv- 
ing there at 3715 Fox Hall Road, 29204. 
Happy is so "happy" and writes that she 
and Ross have had such fun getting set- 
tled, tho she has lots to learn about the 
kitchen, house and yard. They are living 
right down the street from CAROL GER- 
RARD ANDERSON and Joe, who are 
domg their best to keep up with their 
little son, Jody, who is now a full fledged 
"tricycler." Carol is still teaching piano 
and attempting to keep 30 students under 
control. Think you've met your match — 
huh, Carol?? 

Carol and ANN KING were both in 
CAROLE ANN WEISS FORSYTH'S wed- 
ding January 17 in Rock Hill, South 
Carolina. Carole Ann and John are living 
at 9525 Granby Street, Apt. G, Norfolk, 
Virginia. 

CHERRY CAUSEY and her new hus- 
band. Chuck, are also in Columbia. Cherry 
received her Master's Degree in social 
work from the U. of Ga. and was mar- 
ried in March. She is pursuing her field 
as a psychiatric social worker at State 
Hospital while Chuck practices law in 
Columbia. 

MARGARET YOUNG ANDERSON 

graduated from USC and is settled with her 
husband, Jim, in Columbia, where Mar- 
garet is doing social work while Jim 
finishes up his last year of Law School at 
USC. 

Also at the University of South Carolina 
in Columbia is GINGER DE STEFANO 
HANCE, who is working on her Master 
of Science Degree in biology. She is 
performing quite a feat taking care of 
her studies, teaching in the Chemistry 
lab, and taking care of her five year old 
daughter, Michele, and her husband. Pierce, 
who is continuing work on his Ph.D. 

FRAN HAMER STROUD and her 
husband, Keith, were at the time of writ- 
ing, both teaching in Charlotte. They 
are probably in Columbia now where 
Keith is or will be attending USC Law 
School. 

JAN CRAWLEY MILLS writes that she 
is playing the typical housewife-mother 
role, and loving every minute of it! I 
wish you could see the picture of her 
daughter Julie that arrived with her let- 
ter. She's adorable and looks just like 
Jan and Freddie. Our teddy bear, Freddie, 
by the way, has lost almost 60 pounds and 
thinks he's Arnold Palmer on that golf 
course! 

BECKY RUSSELL FERRELL announces, 
rather belatedly, the birth of her first 
child on December 24, Rebecca Russell 
Ferrell. That name has a familiar ring to 
it, Becky. Congratulations! 

DONNA VAN PELT TOBUREN and 
her husband, Rick, are now residents of 
New Haven, Michigan (57637 Main Street, 
48048), where Rick is stationed at Self- 
ridge AFB. Donna was assistant chief of 
the chemistry lab at a local hospital, but 
has probably by now given that up to 
become "mother" of the baby that was 
due to arrive October 2. Let us know — 
girl or boy?? 

CAROL ANN HATTAWAY must have 
had her second baby by now, but I don't 
have any idea of the particulars. She and 



her family, after their third move, have 
settled in a townhouse in Greensboro. 
Don't forget to send us a birth announce- 
ment, Carol Ann! 

The grapevine reports that MARILYN 
WARD MOORE is expecting. Please let 
me hear from you, Marilyn. Also word 
has it that Kitty Smith Shapard and her 
husband, Joe, are expecting in November. 
What about it, Kitty?? She and Joe are 
living in Atlanta where Joe is beginning 
work on his Ph.D. 

MARY DAVENPORT NELSON and 
her cute Kinloch are, as usual, "on the 
go." They left on June 15 for Iowa City, 
Iowa, driving all the way from Rich- 
mond with their English Setter and cat. 
They took a camping vacation in the 
Tetons the first two weeks in September 
and Mary reports that they had a great 
time enjoying nature. I'm sure they did — 
it's their bag! They are settled in their 
very own house at 428 Clark Street, Iowa 
City, Iowa 52240. Kinloch is an intern 
at the U. of Iowa Hospital this year and 
graduates to residency in the Urology 
Dept. next year. We wish you and Dr. 
Nelson only the best during your years 
amid cornfields, pigs and U. of Iowa stu- 
dents, Mary! 

Another medical wife, PAT BURDETTE 
writes that her husband, Fred, finished 
medical school at Bowman Gray in June 
and is a surgery intern at Roosevelt Hos- 
pital in New York City. They have a 
five year old daughter, Mariana, and a

HANKINS LOPP and Fred are in Chapel 
Hill, where Fred is a second year resident 
in peridontics. Little Beth Lopp decided 
to arrive several weeks early this summer 
while Fred was away in Naval Reserves. 
BARBARA MALLARD, who was staying 
with Pat at that time, "paced the waiting 
room floor like the best of them," and 
notified all concerned! Candy Stell re- 
cently saw Barbara in Asheboro, where 
she's teaching. 

JANE DAVIS left her job as a dental 
hygienist in Fayetteville and joined the 
ranks of newly weds on June 21 when she 
married Ron Stone, a graduate of David- 
son. They are in Chapel Hill where Ron 
is in his third year of Dental School at 
UNC.

also enjoying life as a medical wife! She 
and Tom are in Atlanta where Tom is 
in his residency at Grady Memorial Hos- 
pital. Tom has one more year in Radiology 
before going into the Air Force. 

Our class has a never ending supply of 
newlyweds! ! JACKIE LANCASTER

Since the last Bulletin, I have heard 
from many '68'ers and I must say we are 
an active group, and this activity has re- 
sulted in many changes of address. 

SUSAN BARNES BARKER and Ed 
have moved to Charlottesville, Va., where 
she is teaching while he is in grad school 
at the University of Virginia. 

BETSY KITCHIN WHITE and Ramsey 
are still in Virginia Beach, where both 
teach. 

HELEN BEST has moved out of Wash- 
ington to Georgetown, Va., but I do not 
have the address. She is still working for 
Sen. Hale Boggs. 

BARRY THRIFT BROWN and Clark 
announce the arrival of Robert Barry on 
July 11. They are fine, except for the 2 
A.M. feedings!!, and are now in Hunting- 
ton, W. Va. 

SARAH LYNNE COBB GREGORY 
and Ed have moved from Raleigh, but I 
do not have the new address. I did have 
a long letter from GAIL SMITH who is 
now employed by Wachovia Bank in 
Charlotte. She must not instill too much 
confidence in her customers because her 
roommate, SUZAN MATHEWS, still 
banks at NCNB. Speaking of Suzan, she is 
teaching English and World History at 
Myers Park, but is considering graduate 
school for 1970. Gail mentioned that 
BETSY BARKER and Charlie "finally 
made it." I assume she is referring to the 
nuptial knot, but I will leave that to 
your imagination. Gail and Suzan live at 
1601 Eastcrest Drive. 

And speaking of nuptials, BUMPY 
McIVER and Beje Hinson (alias W. H., 
Jr.) finally wrapped things up on July 
19, 1969, and Salemites turned out en 
masse to witness the event. MARY ALICE 
DELUCA, CONNIE SORENSEN, JEAN- 
NINE STAFFORD, CAROLYN BILL- 
INGS, and JANE OLMSTED were there 
as well as SISTER TEMPLE CIVILS and 
me. All in all it was a gala affair and a 
good time was had by all. Bumpy and 
Beje live at Jefferson Manor Aprs., Rt. 
9, Box 1688-A, Sanford, N. C. 27330. 



While at the wedding, I managed to 
scare some news out of the wedding 
crowd. CAROLYN BILLINGS is in grad 
school at the University of Illinois. JEAN- 
NINE is at Converse. MARY ALICE is 
still working for Western Electric in 
Burlington, and CONNIE is still at Bow- 
man Gray. JANE was finishing her Mas- 
ter's at 'Wake Forest. 

MARY HOBSON FARR went cosmo- 
politan on us this summer and treked to 
California where she imposed on relatives 
for one month, taking in all the sights 
and sounds. She reports that she passed 
up the opportunity to join hippiedom, 
and is back in Virginia Beach teaching 
second grade. Her new address is 117 50th 
St. Unfortunately, and surprisingly, her 
old crony, SUSAN JONES will not be 
joining her for another winter of the 
hard life. The Virginia Beach legend rings 
true again — Susan has made a catch! 
He is Bruce Satzger, and the wedding is 
set for November 29. They will live in 
Cincinnati, where Bruce is associated with 
an accounting firm. I hope this move to 
another state does not entail obtaining 
a new driver's license. You know how 
South Carolinians pride themselves on 
having driven since age 14. Well, Susan's 
vast experience behind the wheel did not 
help her in Virginia. She failed the test, 
and had to take the driving part twicel! 

Several more changes of address: 
KATHIE CARPENTER, 145-E North 
St., Newtonville, Mass. 02160. 

PAM JORDAN STALLINGS, 119 Earl 
St., Rocky Mount, N. C. 27801. 

LAURIE WILLIAMS, 534 Dogwood 
Dr., Chapel Hill, N. C. 27514. 

BEV WARD, 401 E. 88th St., Apt. 

9-G, New York, New York.

Clark Jackson were married August 15 
and live in Chapel Hill at No. 20, Willow 
Terrace Aprs. 

SALLIE THOMAS and Floyd Carmichael 
were married March 22 in Oxford, and 
are stationed in Albuquerque, New Mexi- 
co, where Floyd is with the Air Force. 

DIANE FRIES and Norman Norton 
were married last spring and are living 
in Raleigh where both teach chemistry. 

CLARE GIVAN and Bill Royer were 
married during the summer, but I do 
not have their address. 

MARTY LEE FIELD and Jim are liv- 
ing in Virginia Beach having married last 
April. Marty is teaching math in Nor- 
folk. Marty and BROWNIE BALLARD 
were attendants for PATSY MARTIN 
who married Jack Waters August 24. They 
live in Lumberton. Brownie is in Fort 
Lauderdale, 749 S. E. 15th St., 33316. She 
teaches music. 

JANE WATKINS and John Bachman 
were married June 21 and are now in 
Tampa. LINDA MOORE. BETTY BRITT, 
and MALLORY LYKES REYNOLDS

tended Betty in her September wedding. 

MARTHA de la GARZA will be mar- 
ried November 15 to a "very much 
American Pete." They will be at Stanford 
while he earns a Master's Degree in en- 
gineering. 



The Denver crew, MARTHA EU- 
BANKS, MARILYN LOWRY, and 
FRANCES JONES are thriving in Denver, 
as are BILLIE BUSBY WEBB and Jody. 
They welcomed Jody Clayton Webb, Jr., 
last April. Billie has been taking courses 
part-time and managing an apartment 
house for hippies. She wrote that RUTH 
DAVIS married May 31, and completed 
her M.S. in library science at UNC-CH. 
Her husband is a candidate for a Ph.D. 
in economics. 

And can you believe it? NANCY 
JOHNSON finally got organized and com- 
pleted her Master's in librarianship at 
Emory. 

BETTY HILL PITTS earned her M.A. 
in history, also at Emory, and is now 
teaching in the DeKalb County schools. 
Betty Hill and JANE LITTON are living 
together in Atlanta. Jane works for the 
Georgia Mental Institute. 

LINDA HOLLAND POWELL writes 
that she and Gene have had a good year 
in Charlotte. She taught last year in a 
low socio-economic area, but I do not 
know if she returned to the same posi- 
tion this year. Gene is at UNC-C. Dec- 
orating their home keeps both busy, plus 
— their dog had five puppies. Their ad- 
dress is 2507 Eaton Road, 28205. 

PATSY MATHEWS REYNOLDS and 
Ozzie spent the summer at Camp Sea 
Gull, where Ozzie ran tours to Manteo, 
Kitty Hawk, and surrounding areas, while 
Patsy operated under the title of Director 
of Special Services or some such absurdity. 
Patsy has achieved renown with her Latin 
students at Jordan High School in Durham 
County. They took many honors at the 
State Latin Festival last spring and she is 
the state sponsor this vear. Congratula- 
tions. Pats! She and Ozzie live at No. 1, 
Flemington Road, Chapel Hill, 27514. 

Congratulations, DONNA and Danny! 
The Moseleys of 2114 E. Tremont Court, 
Richmond, welcomed little Cameron 
Leigh (female) in April. 

BETH TAYLOR WHITE writes about 
LISA MABLEY'S newest car — a red one 
to replace the blue one which followed 
the green one which replaced the white 
one! 

Word of JOAN EVELYN McNAIRY 
COX, came to the Alumnae Office. 
"Joan's husband, a Naval Lieutenant, is 
home-based at Pearl Harbor, so Joan and 
her young son live at Pearl City, which 
is situated adjacent to Honolulu. They 
hoDe eventually to get assigned to the 
Atlantic Fleet and move east." Joan's ad- 
dress is: Mrs. Milford Chantwin Cox., Jr.,' 
IT^I Kuokoa Street, Pearl City, Hawaii 
96782. 

OLIVE lENKINS' address is; 1690 
Magnolia Dr., Cleveland, Ohio 44106. 
She is starting school all over asain and 
going to the Conservatory in Cleveland, 
startine from scratch in music courses, and 
specializing in harp, of course. Isn't she 
brave? Her mother says she is literally 
working her fingers to the bone but is 
crazy about it. 

SISTER TEMPLE CIVILS and John are 
still in Kinston. Sister teaches third grade 
and John, who has recently finished his 
six months active duty with the Army, 
works for Wachovia. By the way, if you 



need some decorating done, contact Sister's 
ex-roomie, COURTNEY GIBB. She has

history at UNC-CH last summer, and am 
teaching World and American History in 
Clinton, N. C. You can mail your news 
to me either at home in Kinston, or at 
the Clinton High School. But please 
mail some. 

Oh, a word to the wise. If you are in 
Winston-Salem, do not — I repeat, do 
not — invite yourself to dine with CON- 
NIE SORENSEN. Her oven is 500° off — 
she charred a pie in fifteen minutes!

On behalf of the Class of the Baby 
Boom, I now announce the Marriage 
Movement! Those of us who didn't go 
abroad this summer spent our time being 
in, or crying at, weddings . . . 

It all started with JANET BOWERS 
who wed Roger Kramer June l4th. Now 
they're living in Cherry Point, N. C, while 
Roger is stationed with the Marines and 
Janet shows off in the kitchen. (Mrs. 
Snow would be proud!) Her sweetie will 
be leaving for Vietnam in November, so 
Janet would love to hear from all of you. 
Her address is 22 Kimes Street, Havelock, 
N. C. 28532. 

Also on the fourteenth, PAM SMITH 
became Mrs. David James and the wife 
of a Wake Forest Law student all at once. 
Pam and David are in Winston where 
she is working for Wachovia Bank. 

ANNE CALHOUN and Dwight Gentry 
picked June 21st for their wedding in 
Richmond. Married by her father, Anne 
is now living at Fort Bragg where Dwight 
is an Aimy M.P. Calhoun, er . . . 
Gentry says Beach Bear is happy to have 
his daddy around permanently. 

NANCY RICHARDSON also changed 
her initials in June. Now Mrs. Ed Parker, 
she and her tennis-playing husband are 
living in Winston while he finishes law 
school. This year's student government at 



Salem should be happy to have her 
around! 

ANNE MacBRYDE WILLIAMS and 
Bob are living in Alexandria, Va., courtesy 
of Uncle Sam, after their June 21st wed- 
ding. If she is living up to all those 
plans made long before the ceremony, 
Anne is probably a first class Army wife. 

Also being a good Army wife is JUDY 
STEVENS, Mrs. Bill Garnett as of June. 
Bill's fairy godmother granted them a 
fabulous summer at Chatham, Cape Cod, 
where Bill had the perfect job. Now he's a 
second lieutenant with the Army, so the 
Garnett's are living at Fort Gordon, Ga. 

SUE LA PAN married Lee Bettis June 
22nd in Saranac Lake, N. Y. They were 
living at 546 Pearl Street in Fayetteville, 
but I've recently heard that Lee is now in 
Vietnam. 

TRISHA P0LL(X;K ROBINSON is 
living in Rockville, Maryland where she 
and Tom are making beautiful scratches 
together on the local school blackboards. 
Their New Bern wedding was performed 
June 28th. 

LAURA EUTSLER became Mrs. Jona- 
than Arney on June 28th. They've made 
a temporary home in Eatontown, New 
Jersey, while John is stationed at Ft. 
Monmouth. 

As for July ... It saw NANCY COBLE 
and Dr. James E. Hannah married on the 
twelfth. A graduate of Amherst College 
and of the Bowman Gray School of 
Medicine, Dr. Hannah is now an intern 
at City Hospital in Boston. Their home 
is in Brookline, Massachusetts. 

NANCY TAYOR came down the aisle 
all smiles in her July 12th wedding to 
Bob Summer. She's a first grade teacher 
in Winston-Salem while Bob finishes his 
law studies. I do want to say that con- 
trary to all rumors, Nancy Kate did not 
yell "Get qui-et!" just before the cere- 
mony. Their address is 1031 Polo Road. 

ANNE PLYLER and Kent Lee were 
married the following week. They're now 
living in Monroe at the Old Georgetown 
Apartments, and Kent is a metallurgical 
engineer with Allvac Metals. Ah so. Poo 
Lee! 

JANE BOYD, wearing her mother's 
wedding gown, married Steve Hoover 
July 19th. Steve is in the Navy and Jane 
writes that she will be able to join him 
in San Diego September 26th. After that 
they hope to have at least eighteen months 
together before he goes on cruise. 

CAROL ANDERSON became Mrs. 
George Thornhill, III on July 26th and

student at Elon College.

band. Bob Bumgarner are living in a

He is a purchasing agent for Lowe's Com- 
panies, Inc., and Greer teaches at Moravian

Augusta, Georgia. Her address is now 
Apartment 35, 6419 Skyline Drive in 
Houston, Texas, where Harry is a physi- 
cist for Texaco Research Laboratories.

Married August 9th were SUE 
WOOTEN and Mark Galloway. They are 
living in Winston now, while Sue is 
employed with the advertising depart- 
ment of Wachovia, and while Mark gets 
his law degree. She had spent the sum- 
mer sharing a Winston-Salem apartment 
with PEGGY HART and MARY ANNA 
REDFERN, and like most everyone else, 
had gone the bridesmaid route a number 
of times — even twice in one day for 
NANCY TAYLOR and COBLE! 

BONNY PREVATTE became Mrs. Bob 
Shepard on a rainy August 10th. Bonny 
writes she is very happy and is living in 
Pensacola, Florida, where Bob is in train- 
ing to be a Navy pilot. She had spent the 
summer teaching language arts to 7th, 8th, 
and 9th graders. 

LIZA POND married Jim Rainey in 
SuflFolk August 16th and is living at 
131-1/2 Brewer Avenue there. Jim is as- 
sociated with the Trust Department of 
the United Virginia Bank Seaboard Na- 
tional and Liza is a special education 
teacher with the public schools in Suffolk. 

ELISABETH BOSCH has all the luck! 
After her marriage to Dan Biggerstaff 
August 16th, they moved into the home 
of one of Dan's professors. A beautiful 
place, the home is all theirs for a year 
while the professor and his wife are in 
Europe. Elisabeth hasn't had it that good 
since she was in Gramley her sophomore 
year! Dan is at the Medical University of 
South Carolina, where Elisabeth is a re- 
search assistant, which makes it very nice 
for them both. 

ELAINE SMITH is now Mrs. Harris 
Johnson (Chip) Ogburn, Jr. He is a 
student at N. C. State's School of Design 
in Landscape Architecture. Their address 
is 2656 Oberlin Road in Raleigh. 

GAY GUNTER also had an August 
wedding. As Mrs. Jim Dillashaw, she is 
living at 4603-B Hedgemore Drive in 
Charlotte. Jim is sales manager for Hynes 
Sales Co., Inc. 

There have been a few other weddings, 
though I don't know the correct dates. 
HILLARY MASTERS' wedding in Wash- 
ington was followed by a beautiful garden 
reception. 

POLLY SMITH married Bill Nelson in 
September. BEV LANCASTER is now 
Mrs. Clifford Earl. 

ANN COPENHAVER changed her 
name to Cotton. Phil's in the Navy at 
Norfolk, Va. 

LANDER MARSHALL and Frank 
Dean are married now. They live in 
Tuscalousa, Alabama. BETSY PEABODY 
is Mrs. Esmond Phelps. 

And here's a big news flash . . . 
JANET BARBOUR is Mrs. Ernie Simons 
as of raid-September. That should make 
all the Bitting girls happy! They had 
seen quite a bit of each other this sum- 
mer when Janet was taking a secretarial 
course in conjunction with Radcliffe. 
They'd even managed to work in a tour 
of Chinatown. 

And now for our jet set — I hear 
that Salem girls were given Nobel Peace 
Prizes for their roles in supporting the 
faltering economies of "Europe! 

Among the biggest supporters were

FROM THE LIBRARY 

The College Library wishes to thank all 
of the generous alumnae who have con- 
tributed materials for the Grace L. Siewers 
Historical Room. Many of these items have 
filled important gaps and added immeasur- 
ably to the value and completeness of the 
college archives. 

We find that our collection of Salem 
Student Government Handbooks lacks No. 
1 for 1916-17. If any one has a copy of 
this item, the library would appreciate 
having it very much. Then our collection 
would be complete to date. 

We would also like to have any letters, 
especially old ones, written by students 
from the college and concerning life on 
campus. If the possessor is not ready to 
part with these treasures, could we have a 
photocopy for our files.'' 

The library is especially interested in 
obtaining duplicate issues of the Acad- 
emy which ran from v. 1-37, 1878-1914. 
This was the forerunner of the Alumnae 
Record. Our bound copy of the Academy 
is in poor condition, and there are no 
other copies on campus. 



ANNA DUKEHART, ANNE AMBLER 
and ROBERTA THOMPSON, who stayed 
so busy they didn't once run into CECILIA 
MOORE, BETSY SHELBURNE, MARY 
JANE BOREN, ELIZABETH PRIDGEN 
and KATHY STALLINGS. They met 
ROBIN RICKMAN and JEANNE 
GARNER in Rome and saw KRISTIN 
JORGENSON and MARY SHEPPARD 
in Madrid. 

Kristin, Mary, SUSAN KIRBY, MON- 
TINE BRYAN, Sandra Holder and Sandra 
Culpepper were conducting their own 
"poverty tour" at the time. 'They came in 
off the streets just long enough to mooch 
with the Michies (who were in London) 
and to chat with Dean Hixson in a 
Florence train station. 

In Asolo, Italy, were our artistic genii; 
NANCY HOLDERNESS. BECKY BOLT, 
SUE LEAKE, and ANNE WYCHE. Sue 
graduated from the school at Asolo which 
is, I believe, a first! 

CONNIE GILLAM went on a fabulous 
around-the-world tour. 

Before settling down in Chatham, Vir- 
ginia, SARA HUNT traveled to Greece, 
India, and Iran. 

Since coming home, these amazing girls 
have become career-minded. 

BETSY SHELBURNE writes from 
Suitland, Maryland, that she is working 
for the Bureau of the Census in their 
Poverty Statistics Program, and will soon 
be taking some courses at the Department 
of Agriculture's Graduate School in down- 



town Washington. She has a "nice" apart- 
ment and "can't wait to see what's up 
with all the other '69'ers." Her address 
is Apt. 204, 3004 Pearl Drive. 

MARY SHEPPARD and ETHEL HAR- 
RISON are sharing an apartment under 
MONTINE BRYAN, JOAN HOBBS, and 
CANDY STELL at The Salem Square 
Apartments. Montine is a junior high 
school teacher in Winston and Joan and 
Candy are working for the Admissions 
Office at Salem. When I last saw Joan 
this summer, she was getting ready for 
her first date with her "mystery man" so 
I think her social life is in high gear! 

SUSAN KIRBY is sharing a Raleigh 
apartment with KATHI LONG. Her big 
news is her diamond from G. B. Browder. 
It was waiting for her at the airport on her 
return from Europe. Susan is teaching 
French at one of the local junior highs. 
Kathi has been working at a library for 
the deaf and will begin library school at 
Chapel Hill in January. 

When last I heard, KRISTIN JORGEN- 
SON and DONETTA GEORGE were in 
Washington looking for jobs and having a 
very exciting time. Kristin says she has 
put on her "wholesome, well-scrubbed 
disguise" and has made some headway. 
Donetta, I'm not too sure about. 

Also in Washington is TUGGIE TODD 
who IS working temporarily with her local 
representative and living with the best 
of the class of '68: Helen! 

A few quickies . . . NANCY HOLDER- 
NESS IS now going to design school in 
New York. ANNE WYCHE is teaching 
art in Fort Lauderdale. ELIZABETH 
PRIDGEN, also a teacher, is in Chapel 
Hill. 

Meanwhile, down Atlanta way, BECKY 
BOLT is sharing an apartment with some 
Agnes Scott friends. 

MARY ANNA REDFERN, BARBARA 
SMETHIE, and DONNA SCHAFF are 
apartment-sharing in Atlanta. Mary Anna's 
pounding the pavement while Barbara is in 
a Management Trainee program with 
Southern Bell. The nicest thing about 
being a Southern Belle is that you can 
call free anywhere in the United States up 
to $1,000. Stay close to home, Smethie 
should be calling you before long! Their 
address is 136 Peachtree Memorial Drive 
Apt. J8. 

KATHERINE McCARTY has a job 
as a receptionist-typist for Courts and 
Company Stock Brokers in Atlanta. She's 
living with her sister and brother-in-law 
and already has the loyalties of a true-blue 
Atlantean! 

AMY and Paul Orser are also in At- 
lanta. While Paul is studying at Emory, 
Amy is giving private piano lessons. 

CARROLL LENNON is teaching 
French in Richmond, where she and 
SARAH ULMER are sharing an apart- 
ment. Squeeky Sarah is putting her math- 
ematical knowledge to good use in work 
with computers. She and La Fleur made 
the rounds of weddings so often this sum- 
mer, they were almost named honorary 
brides! 

Also sharing a Virginia apartment are 
FRANCIE BREEDEN and PATSY CAR- 
TER. Both are teaching in Virginia Beach 



and living at this address: 7606 Atlantic 
Blvd., Apt. A. 

CLARINE POLLOCK is teaching in 
Durham County and ELLIS WILLIAM- 
SON is in Asheville working for the Al- 
coholic Rehabilitation Center. 

MARTHA GOMER worked this sum- 
mer at a nursing home in Princeton, 
New Jersey as a dietician. She will be 
working at a Princeton hospital until Oc- 
tober 20th; then she'll be living at home 
in Baltimore. 

SUSAN GRAY FOWLER writes that 
she is teaching piano at home, and also 
French and Spanish in the local schools. 
On January 7th, she'll leave for Bucara- 
manga, Colombia, where she will teach 
English and ballet in a cultural center for 
a year. 

KATHY SHERRILL has landed a job 
as stewardess with TWA, so we'll all have 
to be on the lookout for her in the 
friendly skies! MARNEY PREVOST is 
living at home and waiting for word 
from TWA, also. She hopes to be flying 
with Kathy. 

SUE SMITH has an exciting job with 
The George Shipp Travel Agency in 
Winston. She writes that "even the hum- 
drum matters interest me" and of course 
she meets so many fascinating people. 



CATHY CLEMENTS is in grad school 
at Btown. Also taking graduate courses 
are NANCY FOLTZ; MARSHA DIETZ, 
at The 'Virginia Institute of Marine Sci- 
ence; GAIL ROGERS at Chapel Hill's 
School of Library Science (she's living in 
a co-ed dorm!); RONNIE HALWARD at 
The University of Georgia; and JANE 
BOSTIAN, at Duke. 

Ronnie writes that she has found a 
"mod" apartment until the end of Decem- 
ber. Her address is Apt. 303 University 
Gardens, 190 Baxter Dr., Athens, Ga. 
30601. She'll be seeing her old roomie, 
JANE ABERCROMBIE (now Mrs. Daniel 
Manry, Jr.) at the Georgia-Florida game. 

JANE BOSTIAN is sharing her Dur- 
ham apartment with two other girl gradu- 
ate students at Duke. She writes that she 
doesn't have an 8:00 class — a first! — 
but that her professor covered all she knew 
in the first 45 minutes of his introductory 
lecture! Good luck, Jane! 

TINA GWALTNEY is working in 
Winston-Salm at Thalhimers, as is B-B 
JAMES GAY. 

KRISTI SCOTT is a computer pro- 
grammer for Eastern Airlines in Charlotte. 

JULIE GRAHAM is in Charlotte being 
an employment counselor for National 



Personnel. And soon it will be "Julie for 
the Defense"! She's taking courses in 
business law at Central Piedmont Com- 
munity College. 

The Alumnae Office received a note 
from CAROL ANDERSON THORNHILL. 
Her address is: Mrs. George Thornhill, III, 
15-C Greenbriar Aprs., Burlington, N. C. 

MARY CRAWFORD SCHAUB is keep- 
ing house while Sanderson is attending 
graduate school in nearby Claremont, Calif. 
Her address is; Mrs. Sanderson Scott 
Schaub, 10330 Kimberly Ave., Apt. C, 
Kimberly Arms Aprs., Montclair, Calif. 
91763. 

And me? I'm doing what I never would 
have expected four months ago — living 
at home and starting at rock bottom: I 
teach junior high. But I do have my 
barbecues to keep me warm! And some 
day my prince will come. 

Y'all write! Get your news for the next 
Bulletin to me by January 15th. (I need 
the truth or I'll start printing all those 
rumors I've heard! ) I'd write each one 
of you, but let's face it — on my salary 
I just can't fake the postage, so it's up to 
you. I miss you all and hope to hear from 
from you soon.

SALEM COLLEGE BULLETIN 



March, 1970 



I 



Volume XII, Number 6 



Futuristically Speaking 



This issue of the Alumnae Bulletin focuses on a few of the challenges which face our College in the new 
decade. The results of the participation by alumnae from the '60's in the Self-Study Report for the Southern 
Association (page 1) candidly examine every facet of their college experience. In this examination of Salem's 
strengths and weaknesses, they offer many challenges for improvement in the 1970's. 

It is difficult today to find many things truly unique. Yet, we like to think of our experience at Salem as being 
unique and one we would like to share with many others after us. However, in a time when economic conditions 
are increasing the operating costs of small, private institutions, convincing young women of the lifetime benefits 
of a Salem education is but one of the tasks facing our alumnae on the Admissions Staff in the next ten years, 
(page 5.) 

Faculty and students recently participated in Challenge Week conducted by the YWCA. This year's Challenge 
theme was "Religion in a New Decade", (page 6). However, this close look at the significance of religion today 
has not been limited this year to Challenge Week. Last semester a new program called FOCUS was introduced. This 
proved to be a successful series of meetings with students and ministers of all denominations to discuss today's most 
pertinent topics of interest and concern. FOCUS continues this semester, under student leadership, in a six week series 
with guest speakers on the topic of "Racial Justice". The first program of the series, "White Racism," gathered 
an overflowing crowd in the Choral Ensemble room of the Fine Arts Center. 

In tune with the focus on the new decade, there is something each of us might consider for the future. 

As Dr. Gramley challenges the freshmen each fall to take full advantage of the education offered at Salem, we, too, 

are challenged, as freshmen of fifty years ago or five years ago, to ensure future freshmen of this education through 

our support, active alumnae participation, and now more than ever before, through our generosity.

Reflections Upon Reading 340 Questionnaires 

by Sarah Tesch Salzwedel '60 



I always wonder how many people who say, "I welcome 
criticism, as long as it's constructive," really do. Criticism, 
no matter how constructive, while fun to dish out, is hard 
to take. Most of us don't even want much advice! 

Salem College opened herself up for a lot of criticism 
in September, '68, when she allowed herself to be dissected 
for intensive study by committees as part of the second 
ten-year self-study report for the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools. "Participation in the Institutional 
Self-Study Program is required periodically of all member 
institutions of the Southern Association," states Dr. Gram- 
ley in "College Conducts Self-Study" in the March, '69 
Bulletin. "It is the process by which accreditation is re- 
affirmed." The preparing of the report "requires the 
institution to take a close, hard, penetrating look at itself, 
to be completely honest in appraisal, to list shortcomings 
as well as achievements, and to be realistic about its plans, 
hopes, and dreams for the future." After the college has 
measured itself, it is measured by an evaluating committee 
of qualified educators who come to campus "with copies 
of the full report in hand, to check, verify, and appraise," 
to quote Dr. Gramley. The report is now complete, and 
the committee will visit the campus in April. 

Beginning in September, '68, eight committees, com- 
prising faculty, trustees, alumnae, and students studied the 
Purpose of the College, Organization and Administration, 
Educational Program, Financial Resources, Faculty, Library, 
Student Personnel Services, and Physical Plant. 

A special committee named by Student Government 
designed a questionnaire for students to give their feelings 
about Salem. 

Alumnae played an important part in the self-study. 
A full chapter of the final report was given to opinions 
of alumnae. Under the guidance of Betsy Hill Wilson, 
Director of Alumnae Affairs at that time, an Alumnae 
Committee was formed, headed by Mary Louise Edwards, 
president of the Alumnae Association. The eleven other 
members were: Virginia Anderson Basinger, '63, Ann 
Darden Webb Freshwater, '57, Mary Dameron Holderness, 
'66, Vicki Hamilton Hagaman, '51, Myra Dickson Myers, 
'50, Nancy McClung Nading, '43, Mary Bryant Newell, 
'48, Sarah Tesch Salzwedel, '60, E. Sue Cox Shore, '41, 
Sarah Henry Ward, '43, and Joan Reich Scott, '57. Six of 
these alumnae were also members of six of the general 
committees listed above, and thus had direct access to 
information gathered in those areas. 

The Alumnae Committee decided it would send a 
questionnaire to the classes of the last seven years, '62-'68, 
because these Alumnae could be most helpful in comment- 
ing on the Salem College of the '60's and in making sug- 
gestions for her future. ( It was a shock to me to realize 
that my class was already out of range! ) In small group 
work the committee developed questions ranging from 
present occupation and activities of alumnae (and Salem's 
influence in these areas) to curriculum, faculty effective- 
ness, religious influences, counseling. Student Government, 
size of student body, and aspects of Salem's program which 
need strengthening. Alumnae were asked to answer these 
questions openly and as fairly as possible, to comment 
freely, and to sign their names or not, as they chose. 



Of 1,149 questionnaires mailed in January, '69, 340 
were returned in time to be tabulated, interpreted as well 
as possible, and included in the alumnae chapter of the 
self-study report. (I was surprised that less than V3 replied, 
but I have a weakness for questionnaires and love to fill 
them out.) Of those who did return them, almost V3 were 
not graduates of Salem. This fact made us expect a heavy 
dose of criticism. But only a few alumnae were bitter about 
their experiences at Salem. Most, while frequently critical, 
gave many thoughtful comments and helpful suggestions, 
and often blamed themselves for not taking full advantage 
of the program under question. 

In addition to the fairness with which alumnae replied, 
we were impressed with the depth of these replies. Not 
many of the questions had simple answers, and some girls 
wrote paragraphs to qualify each "yes" and "no". Or they 
added their own categories. I fully expected to find under 
"Did you attend graduate school.''" the answer "Possibly. " 
It was enough to blow a computer's mind! How refreshing 
to know that Salem produces such independent thinkers. 

Now that all the work on the self-study has been 
finished and the report turned over to the Southern Asso- 
ciation, we should like to share with you a summary of 
what those 340 alumnae had to say about Salem.

MENT BRIDGE! 

1 



3. Was Salem a disappointment to you? 

Yes — 61 — 18% 
No — 272 — 80% 

Some comments on academic aspects were: curriculum 
too narrow, not demanding enough; liberal approach to 
religion; many students not academically oriented. 

Most of the disappointment was in social areas: too 
many cliques; "stereotyped people" — needed more variety 
of economic and social backgrounds, more emphasis on 
individual ideas and worth; atmosphere too protective 
and confining; too many rules and restrictions; "I realized 
I wanted a co-ed college;" "I was immature." 

4. Do you read, study, keep yourself informed and take 
part in the world around you? 

Yes — 308 — 90% 

No — 9 — 2'/2% 
Do you think Salem had anything to do with your 
answer? 

Yes — 240 — 701/2% 

No — 45 — 13% 

CURRICULUM 

1. Do you feel that the curriculum offered at Salem 
equipped you to gain pleasure from the life you lead? 

Yes — 308 — 90% 

No— 18 — 5% 
Many alumnae said they appreciate having the liberal 
arts base upon which to build, and that they learned 
how to supplement whenever needed through reading and 
study. One said, "A thirst for knowledge has carried over 
from Salem days." Another, "I was delighted with the way 
Salem instilled in me and all the students a curiosity and 
zest for continuous learning." 

Suggestions for improvement referred to specific 
academic subjects: that economics courses need to be more 
practical; that music majors need a broader curriculum; 
that physical education grades not be averaged with other 
grades. Several mentioned they would have liked more 
freedom in the choice of courses and more individual 
study. 

2. Do you feel that this curriculum equipped you to lead 
and serve in improving the community in which you 
live? 

Yes — 267 — 80% 
No — 44— 13% 

Some alumnae stated that they became aware of social 
problems through campus activities and through subject 
matter. They were inspired to want to become involved 
in community affairs. One said, "Salem students are doers. 
An all-girl liberal arts school gives them the opportunity 
to learn how to take the lead in community affairs later 
in life." 

One who disagreed said, "My mind was improved, but 
not my social consciousness." Another, "The curriculum 
is too traditional and unimaginative." 

3. Did you attend graduate school? 

Yes — 88 — 26% 
No — 239 — 70% 
If so, do you feel that you were well prepared for 
graduate study? 

Yes • — 55 — 63% of graduate students 
No — 14 — 16% of graduate students 
Fairly — 2 
Alumnae who felt prepared mentioned that Salem 
gave them good factual background, exposure to resources, 
emphasis on self-discipline, good seminar courses, and 
2 



opportunities for independent study. One said that al- 
though she was not an "A" student at Salem, she felt as 
well prepared as any in her graduate school and better 
prepared than others from all parts of the country. 

Some who felt poorly prepared gave personal rea- 
sons: they had changed majors in mid-stream, or they 
should have studied more. Several suggested more small 
discussion courses, more stress on use of periodicals, and 
greater emphasis on speaking modern languages. 
FACULTY 

1. Do you think that the faculty were dynamic and up- 
to-date in their instruction? 

Yes — 290 — 85% 

No— 101 — 30% 

Fairly — 2 
The unfavorable comments concerned specific faculty 
members teaching in a non-creative, unstimulating man- 
.ner. Some said the teachers often lacked proper equipment 
and that some departments were understaffed. One said, 
"I wish they'd seek students' ideas." And another said, 
"They need more right wing views!" 

2. What is your feeling about the student-faculty rela- 
tionship? 

Excellent — 231 —68% 

Acceptable — 83 — 24% 

Needs improvement — 21 — 6% 
The majority of alumnae found this relationship warm 
and rewarding. Alumnae who commented unfavorably 
generally said that they themselves did not make the 
effort. Several suggested that the student doing "average" 
work was neglected. One thought this relationship in a 
small school seemed too close at times. 

RELIGION 

1. Were religious values more meaningful to you after 

attending Salem? 

Yes — 98 — 29% 
No — 215 — 63% 

One alumna seemed to express the majority view when 
she said, "My faith grew during my college experience. 
However, I do not feel that active religious events at Salem 
contributed to this." To quote the report, "Most seemed 
to feel that an air of Christian ethics pervaded at Salem, 
but some felt formal instruction was poor." The unfavor- 
able comments generally pertained to the quality of the 
instruction in religion courses. One alumna suggested 
having a seminar in the study of each major denomination. 
Several said that they felt more questions were raised in 
religion courses than were answered or resolved. 
LIBRARY 

1. Were you adequately instructed in the use of the 
college library? 

Yes — 253 — 74% 
No — 68 — 20% 

2. Was there adequate material available for your re- 
search? 

Yes — 263 — 77% 
No — 79 — 23% 
"No" answers referred to specific subjects such as 
biology, psychology, French, and Latin. 

3. Have you ever contributed to the Friends of the 
Salem College Library? 

Yes — 37— 11% 
No — 284 — 84% 
STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES 

Much thought has been given to the importance of 



college counseling in the academic, personal, and vocational 
areas. While you were at Salem did you benefit from 
guidance in these areas? 

1. Academic? 

Excellent— 126— 37% 

Acceptable — 134 — 39% 

Needs Improvement — 55 — 16% 

Responses indicate that the student-teacher ratio is 
good; the faculty and Academic Dean are generous with 
their time and concern and readily available for counseling; 
class placement (regular or advanced) is done fairly; 
and excellent guidance is given for changing courses. One 
alumna said, "The sense of individual worth emphasized 
by the faculty is good motivation for academic achieve- 
ment." 

Alumnae who rated guidance "acceptable" seemed 
satisfied, but most evidently did not avail themselves of 
the counseling services offered. 

Some unfavorable comments were: expected more 
academic guidance; was ill-advised; counseling too im- 
personal; need more advice for freshmen; having the 
head of department of one's major as her counselor may 
give a student too narrow a view of what Salem has to 
offer. Some felt students should have more encouragement 
to do graduate study. 

2. Personal? 

Excellent — 70 — 20'/2% 

Acceptable — 120 — 35% 

Needs Improvement — 70 — 20V2% 

To quote the report, "The question of personal counsel- 
ing is such an individual matter that it is difficult to 
generalize or even summarize . . . After reading the 
comments the committee feels that this area certainly 
needed improvement at the time those answering were 
students. However, it is apparent from a study of the 
years these girls graduated that the availability and quality 
of personal counseling at Salem has been improving stead- 
ily over the past ten years and that the college is con- 
cerned with making this an effective and meaningful 
service to her students." 

Sample favorable comments were: "There was always 
someone to help;" "This is where faculty relationships 
meant so much;" "My faculty advisor always listened, but 
never gave the answer. I suppose she wanted me to find my 
own answer;" "My housemother was particularly bene- 
ficial;" "I was stubborn, but I did benefit from the advice 
and counsel of more than one individual." 

Some who rated counseling "acceptable" said: need 
more trained counselors; difficult to find impartial ad- 
visors on a small campus; the availability of such guidance 
should be emphasized more. 

Under "needs improvement" were these comments: 
"I turned to my friends, not to the staff provided;" "We 
used to discuss with each other the lack of good personal 
counselors;" "Sometimes we felt we were watched too 
closely;" "need a staff psychologist;" "Students have more 
serious problems than the administration will admit." 

3. Vocational? 

Excellent— 51 — 15% 
Acceptable — 109 — 32% 
Needs Improvement — 112 — 32% 
Education majors felt good about their counseling. 
Several alumnae said they had never sought help since 
they already had definite vocational plans. However, to 
quote the report, "It was felt generally that further voca- 
tional direction is needed. There are sources available on 



campus, but these need to be expanded. It was also felt 
that emphasis should be placed on the fact that Salem is 
a liberal arts school rather than a vocational school. This 
might be stressed in the catalog and in admissions inter- 
views." 

Some comments of interest are: "It should be im- 
pressed upon every girl that she will possibly want or need 
to earn a living;" "With the computer center, program- 
ming training would be beneficial;" "Most majors (other 
than student teachers) flounder, unless going to graduate 
school; would like aptitude testing, direction toward a 
rewarding job." 

4. Did Salem, through Student Government and other 
campus organizations, foster in you respect for law 
and a high moral code? 

Yes — 223 — 66% 
No — 87 — 25'/2% 

The majority felt the honor code a valuable asset. 
Some said they were more impressed with how well 
Salem's honor tradition works after they had gone from 
Salem to other colleges or universities. One said, "Salem 
is one of few colleges I have seen at which an honor 
system had any tangible effect on students." Several men- 
tioned favorably Salem's emphasis on individual responsi- 
bility and self-discipline. 

Some alumnae gave a "no" answer and explained that 
they came to Salem with these values already developed. 
Most answering negatively mentioned "rules" — too many 
rules; rules that seemed so trivial or out-of-date that they 
"asked to be broken." One said, "I hated to see some 
punished so severely for slight infractions." Another said, 
"The accused in a Judicial Board trial should have the 
right to counsel, and the right to face the accuser." 

Alumnae with both favorable and unfavorable com- 
ments suggested that Salem should in some cases amend 
and up-date regulations. 

5. Did Salem encourage you to assume leadership and 
become actively involved in student affairs? 

Yes — 211 —62% 

No— 111 -32/2% 
Since there are few, if any, men students on campus, 
and since the college is small, women have full opportunity 
for leadership in all areas. Most alumnae indicated there 
is subtle encouragement to lead and participate, rather 
than direct pressure. Individual initiative and preferences 
determine each student's level of involvement. 

Those responding negatively had such reasons as: too 
busy with studies; day student; timid; resentful of a 
clique that seemed to monopolize office-holding; had been 
too involved in high school and wanted a rest. 

6. Do you feel that your college experience gave you a 
new outlook, a wider horizon, and a broader concept 
of your world? 

Yes — 304 — 89% 
No — 26 — 8% 
To quote the report, "It was felt that students from 
the North gained a deeper understanding of the South, 
that college would tend to broaden anyone, that the liberal 
arts program was of great help, and that mature thinking 
was initiated." 

Specific examples mentioned were: Model United 

Nations program; participation in N. C. Advancement 

School; Choral Ensemble concert tour in Europe, 1964; 

"cosmopolitan outlook of the faculty;" Oslo Scholar pro-

IN SPITE OF HURRICANE, 

EARTHQUAKE . . . And The New Jersey Turnpike? 



By Mary Lucy Bivins 
Opposite page: Joan Hobbs (standing) and Candy Stell 



As one staff newcomer to two others, I was greatly 
enlightened by the first-hand, first-year report from our 
enthusiastic alumnae in the Admissions Office. 

Joan Hobbs, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, and 
Anna Laurance "Candy" Stell, a native of High Point, 
have dubbed themselves "The Pony Express," because from 
September through December they traveled for Salem 
inspite of rain, sleet, snow, hurricane, earthquake — and 
the New Jersey Turnpike. This month they "mounted up" 
again through May to meet with high school counselors 
and students throughout the east from New York to 
Miami. 

Often they travel great distances alone for stretches 
as long as two weeks at a time. They both admit this can 
be pretty lonely, but the rewards, including people they've 
met and things they've learned, seem to outweigh the 
miles with only a car radio as company. Joan recalls one 
of these "lonely" times. Driving wearily into Birmingham, 
Alabama, no one bothered to tell her that the names of 
the hotels had been changed all over the city. Refusing 
to fight it any longer, she pulled into the nearest service 
station to ask directions to her hotel. She only remembers 
being thankful that her suddenly red face was in the 
shadows when the attendent pointed to the building next 
door. To make matters worse, as the bell hop came to 
assist with her luggage, her suitcase fell open as he lifted 
it out of the car trunk. As if this was not enough, as she 
turned to tip the patient young man, her toe caught in 
the carpet and she tripped halfway across her room! 

Often, too. Candy and Joan travel in groups with 
admissions representatives from other schools. Candy is 
still trying to forget one such trip when seven fellow new- 
comers hopped into the car, headed for a meeting with 
four-thousand eagerly waiting students, only to discover 
that the driver had locked his keys in the trunk with all 
seven brief cases, which, naturally, contained the material 
on all seven schools. 

But it is not the traveling, or the "on campus" inter- 
views and tours that make Candy, Joan, and their job 
unique. Both are 1969 graduates and part of the increasing 



trend toward young alumni in the field of admissions. 
They are in a position to give an "eye witness" account 
of Salem College today, because they were students them- 
selves, not ten years ago or only five years ago, but Salem 
students of the last half of the '60's — of only ten months 
ago — who instigated and supported so many of the 
current academic and social changes on Salem's campus. 
As Candy puts it, "We are not selling Salem, but have 
the tremendous advantage of telling from fresh experience 
what Salem is all about. Telling about Salem is getting 
excited about what you believe in." 

And Joan adds, "We have the opportunity to present 
Salem as a unique school rather than a girl's finishing 
school, and in doing so, we are talking about education 
itself." 

They both agree that while presenting Salem's educa- 
tion, they at the same time have gained insight them- 
selves into today's varied high school curricula. And in 
learning about this, they have also learned a great deal 
about the product of these curricula — the students. 

Generally speaking, the high school students of today 
have impressed both Joan and Candy as young people who 
have been exposed to a more advanced curriculum and 
more travel. And who are more concerned about and 
involved with their nation and community. They find 
meeting these students both rewarding and challenging. 

Another challenge has been confrontations with poorly 
informed counselors in over-crowded high schools who 
barely have time for the "problem" students. They do 
admit, however, that experiences like this are offset by 
highly efficient counselors who are very receptive whether 
or not they know about Salem. 

Yet, it is still not only the girl's rapport with the 
young, their first-hand account of Salem today, their own 
personalities and love of Salem that make their position in 
1970 unique. Now more than ever before, they must 
not only be prepared to answer the question of why 
young women should choose Salem — but the most 
challenging question of the new decade — "Why should 
I choose a woman's college?"

CHALLENGE: 

RELIGION IN A NEW DECADE 

By Barbara Horney, 70 

Photos by Pelham Lyles 



The Salem College YWCA presented its annual Chal- 
lenge Week February 3-6. Challenge Week is a special 
week during which programs relating to religion and con- 
temporary religious issues are presented to inform students 
and stimulate their interest. The theme of Challenge 1970 
was "Religion in a New Decade". 

This year Challenge began with "Man in One Dimen- 
sion: A Sensory Collage," a delightful sound and vision 
spectacle which was produced by Nelson Isenhower, a 
student at Wake Forest University. He had arranged slides 
of campus life, friendship, love and violence, coupling 
each of them with appropriate music. 

On Wednesday morning, February 4, Dr. McLeod 
Bryan of Wake Forest delivered the keynote address at the 
eleven o'clock assembly, which was entitled "Faith, Futur- 
ism, or Fantasy." Dr. Bryan stated that in the coming age 
the man of faith will dream of "senseless possibilities," 
which may have just as much chance of coming true as 
the dreams of the technologist or man of science. He also 
criticized the Moravians for attempting to underplay the 
socialistic dream of harmonious group living upon which 
the Salem community originally was founded. 



Dr. McLeod Bryan answers questions on talk in Assembly. 





The Rev. J. M. Chatham discusses the role of the church 
in the future. 

Students found that they had several different programs 
from which to choose on Wednesday evening. Dr. Bryan 
spoke again, and answered any questions which students 
might have had on his talk that morning. Dr. William 
White of St. Andrews College in Laurinburg addressed 
himself to the topic of "Christian Love and the End of 
Intimacy." Finally, Rev. Jim Chatham of Winston-Salem 
talked to students about the Underground Church of 
Winston-Salem in which he plays a very active role of 
leadership. 

Thursday night again presented the option of several 
different programs to attend. Salem College's chaplain, Mr. 
Clark Thompson, conducted an encounter group, in which 
students did exercises designed to awaken the senses and 
to make them more sensitive to encounter with other 
human beings. A group of students from the North Caro- 
lina School of the Arts presented a program of dance 
and in a third group, Salem students Dee Dee Geraty and 
Celia Watson presented a program of songs and readings 
from the poetry of Emily Dickinson and others. 

The final program and one of the best of the week 
took place Friday morning at eleven o'clock in Shirley 
Auditorium. It was a discussion program, "Communication 
Across Denominations: An Experiment in Dialogue." 
Rabbi David Rose, Father Richard Hollemann, and Rev. 
Mayo Little, representing, respectively, the Jewish, Catholic 
and Episcopalian churches, each talked about the problems 
his own church faced, and the possible future of his 
church. Students were then given time to ask questions. 
The only complaint heard was that "there was not enough 
time to discuss everything!" 

The members of the YWCA took this complaint as a 
disguised compliment. Students had been stimulated to 
think, to ask, and to seek answers, and this was the whole 
purpose of Challenge Week. 



Departmental Assemblies 

OR 
Whatever Happened To The Assembly Slump? 

By Sara Engram, '70 



Innovation is the key word for the year's Lecture- 
assembly committee. Serving as co-chairmen of the com- 
mittee are Louise Sherrill, Student Government vice- 
president, and Mr. Clark Thompson of the ReUgion Dep- 
artment. Under their leadership, the committee has been 
working to solve the problems faced by Salem's system 
of bi-weekly Assemblies which students are required to 
attend. 

A major consideration of the committee has been the 
opinions expressed by students last spring in a question- 
naire concerning campus life. The survey indicated that 
although 85% of the students felt Assembly serves a worth- 
while purpose, 46.5% would prefer to abolish required 
attendance, while another 25% expressed a desire for 
some other change in attendance policy. 

Other schools have moved to abolish attendance re- 
quirements, but Salem's committee decided against this 
move. Instead the committee hopes to concentrate on plan- 
ning a more varied and appealing schedule of Assemblies. 

In a recent interview the co-chairmen discussed the 
plans of the committee. Mr. Thompson pointed out that at 
least one Assembly period each month is left free. He 
explained, "We have reduced the quantity of assemblies 
with the hope that their quality will increase. Besides a 
"freer" approach schedule-wise, we want to loosen up 
and vary the format of the program. One of our problems 
has been speakers who can't speak. Many students feel 
that a fifty-minute lecture, especially by an ineffective 
speaker, does not relate to them. We want to find other 
ways of communicating." 

Probably the most exciting innovation effected by the 
committee is the initiation of Departmental Assemblies. 
One assembly period per month is set aside for each 
department to plan its own program on some topic in that 



field. Louise outlined the reasoning behind the plan: 
"We feel that the advantages of Departmental Assemblies 
will help to solve some of the problems we have en- 
countered with the Assembly set-up. By giving one period 
each month to the individual departments, we hope to 
encourage smaller, more informal groups. These groups 
can provide a good contrast to the usual lecture." 

The committee has taken $700 from the Lecture- 
Assembly budget in order to allot $50 to each department. 
This money is to be used at the department's discretion. 
The amount is purposefully small in order to encourage 
departments to explore local or near-by resources. 

Four successful Departmental Assemblies were held 
last fall. The December Departmental programs included; 
Home Economics: Demonstration of Electronic Cookery; 
English: Dr. Darwin Turner, Dean of Graduate School at 
A & T University on 'American Black Writers;" History: 
film, "The Stalin Era;" Physical Education: Modern Dance 
film, Martha Graham's "Night Journey." Students and 
faculty agreed it was difficult to choose which program 
to attend. 

At the suggestion of the Lecture-Assembly committee, 
most departments used their January Assembly for a 
student-faculty evaluation of the department's plans for 
the second semester Assemblies. 

The co-chairmen stressed that Departmental Assemb- 
lies have many possibilities. For instance, they offer an ex- 
cellent opportunity for the students and faculty in a dep- 
artment to pursue topics of interest which cannot be 
covered in class. And, as Louise expressed it, "These pro- 
grams can stimulate more involvement in student-faculty 
dialogue, which is an important part of any academic 
community."

QUODLIBET 



Frank C. Campbell 



Benjamin C. Dunford 



By Margaret Vardell Sandresky, '42 



The Harvard Dictionary of Music has the following 
entry: "Quodlibet (L. what you please) . . . Music charac- 
terized by the combination of well-known tunes . . . The 
best known example ... is in the final variation of the 
Bach Goldberg Variations in which two popular melodies 
of his day, 'I Have Been So Long Away' and 'Cabbage 
and Turnips,' are artfully combined within the harmonic 
frame of the theme." 

Cabbage and turnips may not have much to do with 
Frank Campbell and Benjamin Dunford, but there are 
other striking parallels between this definition and these 
two musicians. 

In the first place, the reference to Quodlibet came as 
the result of a search for an appropriate way to present 
these gentlemen together. I knew them both as students 
at Salem, they were both inseparable companions, and 
since that time each has made an outstanding career in 
the field of music. So it was the words "well-known combi- 
nation" rather than "Cabbage and Turnips" which led me 
down this path. 

Frank Campbell, after graduating from Salem, earned 
a Master's Degree in Musicology from the Eastman School 
of Music where he was also a cataloguer in the Sibley 
Music Library. He then became a librarian in the Music 
Division of the Library of Congress. While he was in 
Washington, he was Professor of Music at the American 
University and was a music critic for the Washington 
Evening Star. 

From 1950 to 1966, Frank was Associate Editor of 
the Music Library Association magazine. Notes. As every 
musician knows, this magazine is an absolute necessity, 
because it tells you everything that is published in the 
music field and it reviews the most important publica- 



tions. In 1967-68 he was president of the Music Library 
Association. 

Since 1959 he has been associated with the Music 
Division of the New York Public Library and has been 
chief of this division since 1966. This library is located 
in the Lincoln Center complex of buildings and is a 
fascinating place. Even on the most cursory visit, one is 
charmed by it's beautiful and imaginative displays. 

B. C. Dunford is now Dr. Dunford, having earned a 
Master's at the University of Texas and a Ph.D. at the 
Eastman School of Music, which is a division of the 
University of Rochester. He is presently head of the 
Music Department at William Carey College in Hatties- 
burg, Mississippi. 

B. C. has always been a gifted composer. He also has 
the distinction, I believe, of being the only Salem College 
graduate who ever married another Salem graduate. His 
wife is the charming and talented pianist and composer 
Nancy Ridenhour with whom he is pictured here. 

B. C. has composed in every media. He and Nancy 
are a well-known two-piano team, and he has written a 
book on the notation of music. 

His compositions for large groups have been played 
by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Rochester Civic 
Orchestra, the Oklahoma City Symphony, the Winston- 
Salem Symphony, the Brevard Festival Orchestra, the 
United States Army Band and the North Carolina State 
College Symphonic Band. 

He has received many commissions, the latest of which 
is for an anthem in the folk-rock idiom with guitar, bass, 
drums, and piano. It is called, "Clap Hands — Sing Praise." 

Gentlemen, "You Have Been So Long Away," and 
we congratulate you on your many accomplishments.

Applause For Piano and Harp 



By Jess Byrd, '27 



Soloists for two of the five concerts by the Winston- 
Salem Symphony series for 1968-69 have come from the 
School of Music. Clemens and Margaret Vardell Sandresky 
played Mozart's Concerto for two pianos and orchestra 
in E flat major for the opening concert on October 14; 
Patricia Pence played Maurice Ravel's Introduction mid 
Allegro for harp, string quartet, flute and clarinet on 
February 14. 

For the overflowing crowd in Reynolds Auditorium 
Clem and Margaret's performance was, as the music critic 
for the Winston-Salem Journal described it, "one to 
treasure . . . from as popular and well known a musical 
couple as any in the city — and fine performers." 

Clem and Margaret's playing of the Concerto was 
delightful to unprofessional listeners like me, and pro- 
fessionals say it is "admirably suited to the sensitive play 
which both artists bring to their music." 

Clem, who holds a Master's Degree in Music from 
Harvard, has been Dean of the School of Music since 1952. 
He has appeared with the Charlotte Symphony and the 
Translyvania Orchestra, and he has given recitals through- 
out the area. He served as general chairman of the Eighth 
Early American Moravian Music Festival in 1966 and as 
chairman of the curriculum committee of the National 
Association of Schools of Music. 

Margaret, as did her father, the late Dean Charles G. 
Vardell, combines careers as teacher, organist, composer. 
She is Associate Professor in the School of Music and 
organist at Centenary Methodist Church. Her compositions 
for orchestra have been performed by a number of orches- 
tras including the Oberlin Conservatory Orchestra, the 
Harrisburg Symphony and the Symphony at Eastman, 
where Margaret received the Masters of Music. Her compo- 
sitions include works in many different media. At present 
she is working on a commissioned piece for chorus and 
handbells, and she is trying to write one organ choral 
prelude every week. 



Her classmates of '42 may wonder how Margaret has 
found time to move into and decorate a beautiful new 
home in 1969, to keep up with Clem's many activities 
and those of their children, twelve-year old Eleanor, ten- 
year old Paul, seven-year old Chippy. Maybe that's the 
way she has kept her beauty and the same slim figure she 
had in college. 

Patricia Pence's performance of Ravel's Introduction 
and Allegro for harp, string quartet, flute and clarinet 
with the Winston-Salem Symphony was a rare treat for 
the audience. Pat describes Ravel's composition as "a minia- 
ture harp concerto and devilishly difficult for the soloist." 
Pat's teacher, Carlos Salzedo, spoke of the intense concen- 
tration required for this difficult work which Salzedo per- 
formed in a memorial service for his good friend. Ravel. 

The combined careers of teacher and performer make 
a busy life for Pat. She is the harpist for the Winston- 
Salem Symphony and has given a number of recitals. In 
addition to her work as Instructor in Harp at Salem, she 
teaches harp at the University at Chapel Hill and the 
North Carolina School of the Arts. This summer she will 
teach harp at the National Music Camp at Interlochen 
in Michigan. 

Pat studied for seven summers at the Salzedo School 
of the Harp, at the Universities of Colorado and Penn- 
sylvania, and last summer at the University of North Car- 
olina at Chapel Hill and the Blossom Festival in Ohio. 

Pat's originality extends to her home: she is a gourmet 
cook and has furnished her apartment with beautiful paint- 
ings and sculpture. 

Leading members for many years of the Winston- 
Salem Symphony from the School of Music include Eugene 
M. Jacobowsky, violinist and concert master; Charles 
L. Medlin, cellist. Student members are Pat Barnes, pianist, 
and Diane Ward, violinist.

Diary of a Camping Trip -- 1878 

Contribtited by Elizabeth Zacbary Vogler, '23, 
from the diary of Maria Elizabeth Vogler, teacher at the Academy from 1854-1882 

Illustrated by Pelbam Lyles, 12 



The arrangements for the long anticipated jaunt to 
the Mts. were at length completed, and at [12:30 p.m.] the 
procession, consisting of two large express wagons and 
two baggage wagons, started from the Academy. The com- 
pany consisted of Prof. Agthe (Conductor), Misses Sallie 
Schaffner and M. E. Vogler, teachers, and Maggie and 
Maud Wester, Maggie Hardy, Annie Pittman, Nanie 
Roberts, Sallie Thompson and Sallie Key: Mr. Fogle, who 
is almost indispensable in an excursion to the mountains, 
accompanied us and drove the first conveyance; John 
Chadwick drove the second; Lisk the first baggage wagon; 
Mr. Peterson the other. Lavina Stroupe and Cath. Norman 
went with us to prepare the meals. Prince, Brave and 
Fido trotted patiently along to guard the camp by night. 
We drove out through S. and W., also Liberty and Calyhan 
Town. Stopped at a store about 7 miles from S. and bought 
some melons; it was very warm, so it was quite a refresh- 
ing treat about four o'clock to eat a piece of good water- 
melon. At Stokesburg, where there is only one house, 
one of the girls bought some peacock feathers for toy 
furniture. About [6:30 p.m.] we halted at Mr. Fred Smith's 
to pitch our tents and take up camp for the night in a 
pretty, level, green common fringed with scrubby pines. 
The girls played some games until supper was ready, and 
then seemed to enjoy the novel experience of eating in the 
open air by candle light. After supper we sat before the 
tent and sang comic and gospel songs, and laughed at the 
Professor's singing and his criticisms on the girl's singing; 
one was that they sang like drawing rain worms out of 
the ground. After reading a Psalm and singing the evening 
prayer, we retired, while the lightning flashed almost in- 
cessantly in the N.E., but the cloud did not look threaten- 
ing. It sounded like a flock of martins settling in a roost 
when the girls were all in the tent, chatting, laughing, 
and it was a long time before they could quiet themselves 
down. We had not fallen asleep when the flashes of 
lightning became brighter, the thunder rolled and the 
wind rose, and it was very evident that a storm would 
soon be upon us. Mr. Fogle and one of the men put 
the breaker on the tent, and fastened it more securely, and 
they had not finished when the rain began to fall. Though 
we felt a little anxious that the wind might blow over 
our frail house, we rather enjoyed the novel sensation of 
being in the rain yet not exposed to it. It came pattering 
down faster and faster, but by avoiding coming in contact 
with the rain we were prefectly dry. The only discomfort 
it gave us was the heat in the tent, because we had to 
keep it tightly closed. It rained about two hours and when 
it ceased I opened the windows, and until morning, some 
of us slept comfortably. 
20th 

The sun shone out brightly this morning, and we 
cheerily continued our journey. As the mountains came 
more and more distinctly into view exclamations of delight 
broke forth from one another, and the time passed pleasant- 
ly in listening to Mr. Fogies adventures in one carriage, 
and laughing at the Prof's jokes in the other. 

Stopped at Walnut Cove to buy a cream pitcher and 
match safe as both had been forgotten; as crockery would 
be too liable to be broken over the rough roads, we 
selected a small tin coffee pot to serve as cream pitcher, 
12 



and for a match safe we took a pepper box. At Mr. Rusin's, 
about five miles from Danbury, we drove under some 
trees to halt for dinner; we had hardly made ourselves 
comfortable on the roots of the trees, when a shower of 
rain was seen approaching us from a distance, and in a 
few minutes it was upon us. A young man invited us 
into the house, so some ran thither for shelter and others 
to the carriages. Miss Ada Rursin, an old pupil, and her 
brothers welcomed us very cordially, and the time passed 
very pleasantly while the shower lasted; after which we 
had dinner, and then continued our journey. We had not 
driven a half mile before it commenced raining again. The 
road was heavy and hilly, so our progress was slow. The 
rain fell faster and faster, and when we arrived at Danbury 
we consulted together whether we should stop there at the 
hotel until morning or go three miles further to Piedmont 
and take a cabin; we all preferred the latter; and as we 
could keep dry in the carriages, and there was no risk 
in doing so, we went on to the Springs, and arrived there 
about 5'/2 o'clock. The hotel is on the top of a high hill, 
almost a mountain. There is accommodation in that for 
about 100 guests; there are also several cottages, and a 
large number of cabins. Mr. F. selected two cabins for us, 
one for the ladies and the other for the Prof, and the 
dining room. A lady in a neighboring cabin offered us 
the use of her kitchen, which we thankfully accepted. We 
soon felt at home; swept up the floor, built a fire, and 
curtained off with shawls two withdrawing rooms where 
we could in privacy don our clean dresses. It stopped 
raining soon after our arrival, so that after tea we were 
able to walk out a little, and play some games, etc. 

We then converted our house into a parlor, by putting 
things to rights, or rather by filling up the corners, to get 
a larger space in the middle of the floor, and bringing 
in a chicken coop for a centri table, around which we 
placed our trunks for seats, and the one chair which our 
friendly neighbor had loaned us, set our one candle upon 
the table, and invited all to enter. We gave the Prof, the 
seat of honor, the one chair, and all grouped around the 
table, and had an enjoyable evening playing drafts, Par- 
chesiese. But the greatest and most amusing feat of the 
evening was our walk to the Spring between 9 and 10 
o'clock. We did not discover that our water pail was en-

tirely empty until all the men had retired; the Prof, said 
he would go and get us some if we could direct him to 
the spring; I was the only one that had ever been there 
and that was 16 years ago, but I knew I could find it. 
Several of the girls begged to go with us, so we struck 
out into the gloom with our lantern. We soon found a 
path that I knew must lead to the spring but it was very 
steep and a little slippery from the rain, so we tried to 
find one of the graded walks which we did, but it was an 
unfrequented one, and was so grown up with weeds that 
we were obliged to retrace our steps, and continue in the 
steep path, the Prof, in front with the lantern, and the 
rest following Indian file, laughing heartily at his com- 
ments on the path: "Ach! this is dreadful!," "Now, here 
is a hole!," "Now, here we are in hot water!," etc. We 
reached the bottom of the hill safe, found the Spring, 
or rather Springs, for there is a Chalybeak and a Freestone 
spring within four feet of each other. On our return we 
took a graded walk, which was at least three times as 
far but, of course, not near so steep. 

When we retired to our dotvny couches, made on the 
hard floor with two quilts and a pillow, we fastened the 
doors by moving the trunk against one and a large stone 
against the other, and curtained the window with two 
towels. 
21st 

The sun shone so brightly this morning, that we were 
all in excellent spirits. After breakfast we all walked to the 
spring, and sat awhile in the little Summer House nearby. 
We were all of the same opinion that the chalybeak spring 
at Salem is more strongly impregnated with iron than this. 
While there we had the pleasure of meeting two of our 
former pupils, Roxie Armfield of Guilford Co., and 
Florence Clement of Mocksville who are both spending 
some weeks here. Mrs. Pfohl of Winston called on us also. 

About 8 o'clock we started for the mountain. The road 
was hilly and very rough. At the last house we passed 
before beginning the ascent of the Mt., Mr. Chamberlain's, 
we bought a bl. of the finest apples I have seen this yr. 
and at Dick's house on the Mt., which is deserted since his 
death, we got ripe grapes and peaches. We drove up to 
about a mile from the top, and there camped. After dinner 
the whole company except the Prof, and I and one of the 
drivers walked the remainder of the distance, and spent 
several hours on the top of Moore's Knob, altitude 2,583 ft. 
The Sauratown Mts. were named after a tribe of Indians 
that lived in this region. The Prof, and I played checkers 
awhile, and then went hunting, and I wrote in my diary 
and fixed up the tent, until they returned. They were all 



in good spirits, not at all jaded, and had a great deal to 
tell of the fine view, etc. The Prof, got back from his 
hunting expedition a few minutes before them. When I 
asked him what his success had been, he brought me a 
little humming bird, the only living thing he said he had 
seen, and therefore he had to shoot that, or nothing. 
Everybody scolded him for killing the pretty little creature, 
and afterwards disputed who should have the wings for 
souvenirs. 

There is a very pretty stream near our camp, the water 
as clear as crystal, flowing among the ferns, & over the 
rocks, forming numerous little waterfalls. Right on the 
margin, on a large rock, is a little loghouse with a chimney, 
but for what purpose it was construced is a mystery, for 
it is not large enough for a man to stand or lie in it. 
Perhaps there are some Liliputeans living here on the 
Mt., and run and hide when they see giants such as we 
are coming near them. 
22nd 

The night was very cool. Poor Prof, said he nearly 
froze, but Mr. Fogle lay out under a tree and did not seem 
to mind it. 

We got an early start for the Cascade. Walked down 
the steepest part of the Mt. Prof, walked about two miles 
in search of game; said he, "I never saw such woods, 
everything is as still as death, I did not see a living thing 
but a spider." 

We left the wagons in an old field, 3 or 4 hundred 
yds. from the Cascade, and walked the remainder. We 
scrambled down the steep declivity with Mr. Fogle's 
assistance, but were amply rewarded when we reached the 
bottom by the beauty, the grandeur, and the picturesque- 
ness of the spot. The waters of a considerable creek fall 
about 50 ft. over a rock into a pool, almost circular, at 
least 20 ft. in dia. and from 1 to 4 ft. deep, and over 
shadowed by an immense cliff more than 100 ft. high. 




''W^mmmmMmM 



spent several hours here delightfully. Obtained enough 
cold water from a tiny spring near the margin of the 
pool to make lemonade, which with the teacakes we 
carried with us tasted deliciously in this lovely spot. 

After dinner collected a few trailing ferns, and then 
started for Tory's Den. The road was fearfully rough. The 
Den is a cave about 15 ft. in dia. derives its name from 
the Rev. times when some Tories took refuge there. From 
this part of the road we had a fine view of the opposite 
side of the Knob, to that which we had yesterday. On 
this side there is a long range of perpendicular cliffs, which 
must be about 150 ft. high. 

The drive during the remainder of this evening was 
rough and uninteresting but the Prof, at our request, 
beguiled the tediousness by narrating some of his adven- 
tures in traveling. The account of the fire at sea, when 
they had given up the ship as lost, no life preservers on 
board, the passengers ( there were 600 ) praying and crying 
for mercy, their gratitude when the fire was at last 
extinguished, was the most thrilling and interesting of his 
stories. 

We camped near Mr. Tillotson's about 23 miles from 
Salem. Pitched the tent right in the forks of two roads. 

After supper, as it was the last evening the girls sang 
a long time, and then joined in our usual evening de- 
votions. 

23rd 

Had a very quiet, comfortable night and started cheerily 
on our homeward way. This morning, at the girls' earnest 
request Mr. F. related some thrilling adventures of his 
travels. 

Arrived in Bethania about 12 o'clock and remained 
until three or four. Ate our last meal in a yard under 
the shade of a tree, after which some of the company 
went to the graveyard and others visited friends in the 
village; even the Prof, found an old pupil here. 

Had a delightful drive from there to Salem, where we 
arrived about 7 o'clock all safe and well, thank God. 



REFLECTIONS . . . 
(Continued from Page 3) 
gram; international student program; "Beyond the Square" 
column in Salemite; and the lecture series. 

The report summarized negative views this way: "It 
was felt by some that Salem's atmosphere is a sheltered 
one, that the school is too small to be realistic, that the 
background of the girls is too similar. Most of these trans- 
ferred to larger schools where they felt that university 
setting encouraged more realistic ideas and involvement." 
MISCELLANEOUS 

1. Do you think Salem's size (500 boarders, 100 day 
students) is too large, too small, or just right.' 

Too large — 4 — 1 % 
Too small — 32 — 9% 
Just right — 287 — 84% 

(Two alumnae commented that Salem needs more 
day students) 

2. Do you participate actively in Salem affairs as an 
alumnae? 

Yes — 93 — 27% 
No — 218 — 64% 

3. Knowing that Salem is neither state supported nor 
a recipient of federal funds, do you feel the alumnae 
do their part in supporting Salem? 

Yes — 72 — 21% 

14 



No — 146 — 43% 
Do you? 

Yes — 76 — 22% 
No — 218 — 64% 
Since last year's alumnae fund drive was so successful, 
the committee feels that the above figures are not now a 
true picture of alumnae participation. 

4. What aspects of the college program, not mentioned in 
this questionnaire, do you think need strengthening? 
Some replies of general interest were: 

Increase in faculty salaries 

More independent study 

Salem gives wrong impression; appears to be a 

finishing school and is not 
More visiting professors 

Student participation in curriculum planning 
Study abroad 
Need Phi Beta Kappa 
Improved opportunities for day student 

involvement 
Need full-time fund raiser 
Need summer school 
More racial integration 
"Should be academically avant-garde" 
Need permanent art collection 
Need to offer some business courses 
Less emphasis on "Salem spirit"; more on the 

world at large and community involvement 
Student evaluation of faculty 
Need language house on campus 
More college-sponsored social activities 

5. Are there any strong points of the college program not 
covered here that need mentioning? 

Personal identity — not lost in the crowd 

Homey dining room and good food 

Open-minded president 

Glad there are no sororities 

Learned to be responsible, to have consideration 
for others 

Attractive location, campus, dorms 

Traditions important, "sense of a place in history" 

Lectures, concerts, cultural activities plentiful 

High standards encouraged 

Good relationship among alumnae 

Constant progress toward better curriculum and 
faculty 

Good discussion groups and seminars 

Self-help scholarships 

Honors work 

St
